Paul even walks you through it on the commentary:
"I fake the flip to Gary. Gary does a great job of making like he's got the ball. And the goal is left open for a great shot into an empty net."
Or something like that. UKLF will back me up on this one. I used to watch it again and again and again and again. It's Paul Gait's "all time favourite play at SU". I still try it in pretty much EVERY game I play, with varying success rates.
I used to watch this video when I was a kid learning to play, loved it! The Gait brothers also pull off some crazy fake shots into behind the back and around the world passes. I used to try and imitate them in the front yard, never worked out right!
