Last Friday, goaltender Andrei Gavrilov of the KHL's Salavat Yulaev took a break for a sip of water from the bottle atop his net before realizing the opposition was coming down for a two-on-one.

That opposition was Dynamo Moscow forwards Alexei Sopin and Maxim Karpov. Sopin entered the right side of the zone in control of the puck before passing it between Salavat forward Teemu Hartikainen's legs, who went down in attempt to block the pass mean for Sopin.  

As seen in the video above, Gavrilov was too busy quenching his thirst to realize the impending scoring threat--one of the easiest you'll see, had Karpov made contact with the pass.

Gavrilov still registered the win, allowing just one goal on 25 shots for the 2-1 victory.
