I feel bad for him!

I used to play hockey for years, I even got a scholarship to a US college for it. :hockeypuck: Although I was not a goalkeeper, in my experience those bouncing, spinning pucks are the worst things to deal with, they go in all directions and once they hit something the puck reacts in the most insane ways. I've even seen the puck hit a keeper dead center in the chest, crawl up the front over his shoulder and back down his back into the back of his pants!

It's a bad goal, but more to do with luck than anything. I know when I was playing, if we saw the puck shooting toward the keeper flat on the ice it was no problem, but if the puck was skipping and flipping like that the whole bench would cringe and hope for the best. :2Xpray:

Agreed Otto!

It´s always a tricky one and we´ve seen several top class goalies miss these, but they always look funny in replays....

Perhaps one of the worst miscalculations by a goalie...
