We were actually lucky he was so far behind the play last night. Last season he gave away two penalty shots by hooking players who were going in on breakaways, and would have conceded a third against the Rangers except Nash managed to score anyway.

And it's a really stupid penalty to take because your goalie is more likely to stop a guy on a breakaway than he is to stop a penalty shot where the shooter can plan his move and take as much as time as he needs with no defensive pressure at all.
