From that close in, goalies don't react to shots.
They instinctively play percentage by building a "wall" from down up to cover as much net.

Quick knew a shot was coming so he had his right leg spread out
and held the stick above the pad to make the best "wall" he could in that desperation save.

"Blocking" saves shouldn't be discredited though.
It takes skill to get into proper positions to give themselves the best chance at having shots hit them.

awesome, he can come here and rejoin his visa commercial buddy Burrows and replace Kesler

but srsly, i could see him ending up in Anaheim or the Pens
that $7M cap hit could scare off some teams, i'm sure the asking price would be similar to what Van is asking for Kesler.

Kes will get a lot more then Spezza since the cap hit is so much more reasonable and really Kes is a better all around player

i should hope so...Canucks aren't exactly great at trading these days.

The Kes deal will define Benning as a GM along with whoever he drafts this year.

Benning is a whole new ball game and not a player agent trying to play with the big boys like Gillis was

Benning is also a very highly respected person among the league. GMs will be more than willing to deal with him.

Just about every other GM is more respected/isn't as stubborn as Michael D. Gillis

Except Garth Snow and Jay Feaster

Surprised Murray confirmed the rumour.

Benning is still saying they are "talking" to each other. Whatever the fuck that means.

I guess it's a process.

I'm expecting Bettman instructing the refs to favor the Rangers from now on to lengthen the series.

Lundqvist always has a strong bounce back game after a bad one.
I think they said his SAV% on elimination games are like above 0.950~

/inb4 Lundqvist shutout tonight



Spoiler!

I thought talking about a shutout is okay as long as it's not during the game...?

Edit: oops didn't realize the game was on already.
