I think Pavs shootout problem is that he's really fosing on getting it on net more than anything so he sacrifices his strong deke that we used to see. I'd rather see Nyquist try and beat the goalie on a wrister. Teams must watch shootout videos and know that's his go to move. Haven't seen Nyquist try anything else on breakaways. It's either the quick shot or fake five-hole. Not sure he has very many moves for the shootout
Teams, and goalies more specifically, MOST DEFINITELY watch shootout videos of guys they are going to face. ESPECIALLY IF YOUR NAME IS PAVEL DATSYUK!!!! Which makes it even more confusing that he has used the same "two-move" combo for the last 3 years. Goalies are sitting on that move the whole way.
Watch Holtby on that attempt. He literally barely moves...
It wasn't the shootout that cost the game. That pathetic pp in overtime was the culprit. Needed Larkin then.
Pav, Hank, Kronner, and Green combo made no sense to me. Who is supposed to be the shooter of that group? And how do you expect to score on Holtby when none of those guys will be in front?
