Pierre-Marc Bouchard Shootout Spin-O-Rama

This is from this afternoons game of Minnesota @ San Jose. The second spin-o-rama goal of the week. It is Pierre Marc Bouchard's turn to shoot and he must score to extend the shootout. He scores on this beautiful spin-o-rama, but the Wild were not able to win as Marleau buried the next shot for the Sharks.

My question is. Is this move legal? There could be some debate as he does carry the puck backwards. Do goalies have much of a chance on this? What is Nabokov supposed to do.

Here is the video, I would like to apologize in advance for the poor quality, blame youtube. I rip them fine off the TV but youtube bungles everything up.:

Ballhype: hype it up!

It doesn't actually go backwards. The way he picks up his stick makes it look like it does but if you watch closely the puck does not. BTW the quality wasn't nearly as bad as many youtube vids! No worries on that!
