Yeah, and it gets more noticeable as the game goes on. By the middle of the 3rd period, if the puck was passed from the side boards to the blue line he wouldn't push in the butterfly to follow the play; He would get up first (with the motion you described), then get into position. If a forward had screwed up and left an open shooting lane, an alert NYI dman could have gotten a prime chance. In that sense, the team did a decent job of allowing Emery time to change positioning; and he rewarded them with some key saves. They sure did a terrible job covering guys right next to the net though, wow.
