It's no secret Allaire and Lundqvist go through every goal scored on him and analyze them, don't worry.
Now, this is crappy quality, but watch Sundin's OT goal vs Kiprusoff:
Slapper over the shoulder. It's nothing new that goalies go down early, basically every goalie in the league do it, including last season's Vezina. So did Norrena, but we tried to scramble it in along the ice instead, an area were butterfly goalies excel.
If you expect Lundqvist to save shots over the shoulder, you better ask him to grow two more arms. What do you prefer him to do, letting in softies because he is standing up longer and covering the perfect shots (and perhaps not even saving them then either), or covering the most common shots and letting in the lasers? It is the job of the defense not to let offensive players have to opportunity to make the perfect shots. If a shooter can fire a perfect shot from a good position, the defense has failed, not Lundqvist. You can hope for him to save the impossible shot, but not expect it.
If you let shooters fire perfect shots, no goalie in the world will look good and that's a fact.
