Penguins goaltender drifts so far out of his net on goal, he's on his own island

New, comments

Get it, cause he ends up by the faceoff circle?

Jeff Zatkoff is no Marc-Andre Fleury, that's for sure. The Penguins went with their backup netminder in the second leg of a back-to-back and a positioning mistake by Zatkoff had them briefly down 1-0 to the Blues in the first period.

Zatkoff clearly tried to go for a lunging poke check, but instead ended up spinning off and out of the play completely. Alexander Steen picked up the gift and deposited it cleanly in an empty net as all Zatkoff could do was make a diving attempt to get back in position.

Reminds me of how bad I am at playing goalie in NHL 16.
