Lundqvist Glovehand

First off, this is not a Lundqvist bashing thread. While he's had some low points this season, his play has been stellar on many nights as well.

I had the opportunity to sort through a great deal of game tape the last few days (helps when you have every game digitized from the last 4 seasons).

Recently, Henrik has been very susceptible to giving up the topshelf, glovehand goal. This by definition is a very hard shot to save, as it handcuffs the goalie.

But in reviewing the footage from this year as well as last, I still cannot determine if this is a result of going down earlier or simply a case of shooters discovering a weakness.

In the case of mechanics, I did see a greater tendency to play further out of the net during last season. This would account for cutting down the angle on that particular shot. Is this a flaw of Allaire's less aggressive, deeper in the net style or just a recent trend?

Anyone else have any insight on the issue?
