It's not one that most NHL goalies are gonna stop most nights, let's put it that way.
far out: When a shot goes that fast it seems like it's a lot closer.
Location: perfect snipes that go right under the crossbar and right in the corner are hard to stop.
One timer: Less time to get set, harder to stop.
If he had stopped that one it would have been a highlight reel stop. Perfect snipes at 100mph on one timers don't get stopped often.
If the Canes win this they'll clear 3 teams (Tampa, Florida and Columbus) and be in good position against the Islanders who are losing 6-3 after 2 to the Penguins. That would mean that they'd be 6th before the lottery with a good chance to also drop below the Islanders, and a small chance to drop below Minnesota and Atlanta all the way to 9th.
It was a good shot, but it was a weak goal by Cam. he had plenty of time to react. He was positioned way off.
I was exaggerating the speed a bit, but it was ridiculously fast for a wrist shot.
As for positioning, Cam had to be in position to monitor more then one possible shooter. And it was a perfect snipe top shelf. Perfect. It it's not right at the top and right in the corner it won't wrap around the bar in the back of the net like that. Even IF a goalie is in perfect position those are hard to stop.
When there's no D to work over a shooter, in a situation like that the shooter will win a huge portion of the time in the NHL. Watch a practice sometime, all star goalies get lit up in situations like that where the shooter has time to find their spot. It's part of the reason backup goalies are used in practice- you don't want the practice goals to interfere with the starter's mental game.
And LaRose gets another, and Staal gets a fourth point.
