How far out are you coming on the initial shooter? If you're coming way far out then maybe you're being forced to do too much skating to stay in position (you can't get to the shot lane in a compact stance or a single stride)? I usually don't come more than a step past the crease unless I know the guy only shoots and he has a howitzer.

Some goalies I play with do these drills as a leg warm up/positioning refresher before games, and between whistles. Maybe they could help establish a sort of muscle memory regarding how far out is the max you want to go and what feels right in terms of the farthest you want to move laterally? I see some guys add an extra stop in at the top of the crease. I also see them sometimes work in some shuffles back to their same side post, like if a guy was carrying ti down the boards.




P.S. You owe me a vial of Richter. I won't get into details.
