meh....he could've stopped the last goal. You don't have to necessarily see the puck 100% of the time to stop it. Sometimes when there's traffic, you have to use your hockey IQ to follow the play, know what's developing and anticipate the play/shot.

I have played in net a bit and often when you can't see (I'm 5-7, so I have a lot of experience in not seeing in net), you take your queues from the way the players flow in front of you. Players often act "like water," in a manner of speaking. They tend to flow towards the puck, and following the movement and reactions of the guys in front can tell you when and where the puck is being passed, and where the shot is coming from without actually seeing the shot.
