I guess I was mistaken for holding one of the top goalies in the world up to the standards of an ECHL goaltender.

Hank had more than enough time and information to know roughly where that pick was going, and failed to make a routine stop.

Is that the reason we lost the game? No, but it's the reason that goal was scored.
Have you played goal? What do you mean he had "time and information to know roughly where the puck was going"? He has no idea where the slap shot is going. Like I said, his job, and any goalie's job there is to cover as much of the net as possible and hope the puck hits him. Period. Wrist shot or snap shot and he's got more of a chance. He did get a piece of it, but it went off the inside of his left skate. He didn't even have enough time to get in the butterfly position. The thing that should really be bothering NYR fans about this goal is the lazy ass turnover by Staal with his weak behind the back backhand clear. THAT'S why a goal was scored.
