Now we are going to show some different angles
how to cut down shots. As you can see here, the goalie is standing on the goal line in
his basic stance. But as you can see, there are a lot of open targets in the net for a
shooter to score. But if the goalie comes out of the net, it cuts down the angle of
the shot.
Depending on where the puck is, the angle that you have can help minimize threats. When you are cutting down angles, generally
the goalie should not come too far outside the crease.

    this goalie is where to far back in the crease for one, ive always been taught to stay near the edge at all times, plus an easy angle set up are the blue and red lines where the meet the boards, and the face off dots, helps when u pick an object in the distance to line up with, helps you notice your position in the net without looking back

    wow if people want to become good goalies they need to do more than watch expert villages videos to become good. These video are half assed and everything is too basic, to become a good goalie you need to go to a goalie developmental center like world pro and GDI

    i for one love ice much better than roller because i feel like in roller i can't slide any where just use your outer edge of the skate to stop you when you start to slide a little far or no maybe inside edge i always get them mixed up but if you lift your leg in the direction your sliding and apply pressure to that foot also you'll stop

    expert village is not… i've been playing goal for 15 years (AA, AAA, Jr B, Sr A) and this vid is misleading…

    if a guy is winding up from the blue line you as a goalie better damn well better be out of your crease facing the shooter… if he fakes, back in… watch for potential passes, lord knows your defense won't 😛 just kiddin' i love those guys, when they know what they're doing. 😉

    @attananightshadow yeah there are 4 kinds of depth. Defensive, aggressive, conservative, and base..all relative to the situation.

    @SoulBxS Actually im pretty sure your supposed to hold it where your comfortable, I keep my glove low and close to my body, and snap my arm out when i need to, I make saves, meanwhile i hold my blocker where it is with the stick an inch of the ice, I haven't played very long but i make saves, there is no 'proper' way to hold your gear, its what your comfortable with, and what stops the puck.
