especially if you are not confident in front of your goalie.
Well, yes. You're SUPPOSED to stand them up. As a goalie you prefer it. Even if the guy manages to deke the Dman out, he's already on top of the goalie and doesn't have time to do much with it. But if you just back up in to the corner, place the puck down on a tee and let him rip from 15 feet, the result is rarely good.

Bryz should have been further out at the top of the crease, to be sure, but the D both botched that very badly. I would never have tolerated that from the 12 yr olds I used to coach.
