I got a long off-season until collegiate play starts up again, and know what I need to work on in the 'get better at goaltending' department.

Any advice what I could do to build my psych so I can start and end well?
Just remember that your opposition is just as much or more nervous than you are. Just dig deep inside and insist that you are the better man.
