Puck is dead on course for the goalie net. When it makes a SHARP right turn, almost like an invisible wall in the way and guides the puck out of the goalie crease.

Any hockey fans have any explanations?

Yes.
Its not a conspiracy,its a hockey game where deflections happen,people hit posts and goalies are excellent at what they do.
No conspiracy or anything supernatural.
Sorry to burst the bubble.

to my untrained eye it looks as if the puck bounced of the back of the goalkeepers stick ...

Great save nonetheless..

was gonna say "he willed it so" but it definitly hit the back of his skate. would think they had higher FPS cameras for these close call views.

Look at it again. It does hit his foot. But then it looks like something else hits it as well just a split second afterward, like an invisible wall

As a huge Kings fan, I saw the shot and almost died when it didnt go in. I was so ecstatic that we didnt go down in the first period.

After looking at the shot again and again, and knowing the way Quick works, it was a spinning puck. Much like the "flying saucers" everyone likes to talk about. Iginla's hard angle shot, combined with Quick's right leg pad hitting the puck made for a nice hard spin in the crease.

Basically, it was a lucky/great save.

I think the puck goes downward, then hits a a ridge in the ice, and is deflected. The ridge could be caused by his shoe previously slicing into the ground.

It deflected off the part of the leg pad that protects the knee. I play goalie and have had a save or two just like this.

the speed the cameras capturing is whats throwing it off. its skipping the frames where his foot goes further back and hits the puck deeper... IMO

I went back and took a look at that.. that was odd, it took another angled turn with nothing around it.

Possibly a gash in the ice which was pointed out.. but man, that is a trip to see.

To those saying its off the leg/foot/pad.. yes, thats the first hit.. its the second angle change that is being talked about.

Whoaaa. Watched many times....wondered if it was the stick....maybe a rut in the ice?

If you watch a hockey game, take notice of how the goalies scuff the ice in front of, and inside of the crease. It would explain a lot.

the seconmd 'deflection' i think you're talking about is just due to the pucks shape

That's done to make the just cleaned ice not as slick in/around the crease so the goalie can have a little bit of control on the puck.

Angular Momentum I like to think there is a reason for everything

It looks to me like when it hit his foot, it went up on an angle and rolled in another direction according to the spin it had... Kindof like how bowlers curve the ball halfway down the lane. Nothing miraculous here, just everyday physics.

Watch the video closer, everyone, pay attention to the overhead part. Yes the puck hits his stick but then it deflects again, off of seemingly nothing(The stick or Quick or anything but the ice is no where near it and you can see a dramatic change in direction.) If you look closely at the overhead view, then go back to the other replay, you can see that the puck is somehow taking that deflection off the ice, at least that's the only rational explanation. The ice in the crease can get chipped up bad from the goalies skates.(They like to dig up ice and put it at the corners of the goal, and make it hard for players to skate in it.
)

Still I bet if you put in terms of physics a bounce like that has got to be one in a few million at least.

Yes I have some hockey experience. It looks like the puck hit the bottom of the goalie's skates and it banked off of them at a 90 degree angle. Nothing Supernatural about this at all lol.
