To start, make sure you arent falling. Stay in control when you go down. Keep your butt straight. This will keep you tall. Knees are down, everything else is essentially straight. For a butterfly I am sure you can find a million websites.

For easiest recovery, from what I have seen from coahcing at camps, go one leg at a time. Preferrably your glove leg. As a new goalie you wont have much body control yet, so raise the glove leg then your stick leg. This should help keep your stick on the ground/ice. To help with balance, put some pressure on your stick, but not too much that you are leaning.
