Style Change

from Tom Murray at the Hockey News,

Call it kryptonite for butterfly goalies: short side and high, often on the glove side.
It’s a spot stand-up-style keepers once eliminated by simply moving out to the edge of the crease, playing the angle and forcing the shooter to go stick side or pass. If a shooter went short and a puck somehow managed to squeeze through on that side, it was deemed to be a “bad” goal. Not necessarily so in today’s game.
