For some reason now I'm automatically raising my stick (maybe I'm anticipating a high shot? I am a short goalie and people do shoot high on me). Another is my angles from the extreme left or right (high up near the circles mainly) are down right awful. There are times where I am set and feel like I have the angle covered but then after they score I turn around and see they have a whole lot of net to shoot at. I've tried doing stuff like reminding myself inbetween whistles to keep my stick down, but that doesn't work. I have no idea how to get out of this slump.

I'm not a goalie, but it sounds to me like maybe you need to be challenging shooters a bit more?
