Every smart goal tender does this and I mean everyone. After the zamboni
Scraps the ice it takes a couple min to freeze by the time the shoot out start its almost frozen but still soft, a goaltender will come out and rough up the surface to get a better push off when going left to right. They will then take the snow that they pulled up and push it up against the posts and build it up a inch or two. This will slow or sometimes prevent the puck that is going slow to trickle in. When you are finished you squirt water in the area you cut too deep because it can have the opposite effect and skate will stick in the cut. Not illegal at all very smart

Also remember the zamboni scrape is for the players for the shots, the clean ice does not help the goaltender it hurts them. I heard that they give the goaltender some leeway to even things up
