It's exactly what happened here, i'm a hockey player and have seen the same thing.

The puck touched the goalies then dive downward to hit the ice to be deflected at left.

For sure when you look at "the over the goal angle" you can't see the puck hitting the ice.

Nothing surnatural in the best sport in world .. or maybe the Montreal Canadien's old forum ghosts !

Oh I know why its done, Im just saying that the possibility of a deeper gouge in the ice, exists.

If nothing else, look how late in the period it was, and understand how much movement there is in front of the net, and you could understand the "gouge" theory. Not that YOU dont, but the editorial you.

def not the skate...most likely the top of his stick and then it goes down and hits the ice and continues on its natural path.

It looked liked it hit his stick but now that i seen it a couple times, it clearly hits his pad you can see it knock it a little.

I thought we were going to see a slap shot on goal suddenly take a 90 degree turn or something..
.

It appears as if his Kick save deflected the puck under the pad to ricochet off of his skate's blade back towards the goal.
Look at where his right skate is pointing, the trajectory of the puck is exactly perpendicular to the skate's blade.


Nothing supernatural, but a good example of stored kinetic energy within the puck which is what makes the game of hockey interesting. It's all about deflections and kinetic energy. The puck doesn't stop until it's utilized all of it's stored energy.

This should be moved out of the paranormal section/category though.

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


The puck is spinning after clipping the goalie's skate blade as the edge of it (the puck) hits the ice and that spin, combined with the puck's edge "cutting" into the surface of the ice (of course, not actually cutting but providing enough grab to redirect its trajectory just enough to give it a slight curve back out of danger) made it seem like the puck hit an invisible wall. Kind of like when a pool shooter puts "english" on the cue ball. Pretty lucky break though.
