Because he was coming down from the right side with a chance to launch his shot at any time. Being lefty = less room to short side, righty = more room to short side. And vice versa. Nabokov was forced to play both angles and committed to the short side just when he shot the puck. (pads down, dead arm down, stick to the ice). That leaves one single opening which is no bigger than a size of a puck. I hope I'm making at least some sense trying to explain this.
