Surprised Schoenfeld didn't teach G to hold his stick so that it lays on the ice... would have prevented that 2 on 1 goal.

Horton was so strong, Schoenfeld says, that he could put his stick on the ice with just his thumb and two fingers to block passes. Most defensemen put the stick on the ice with their knuckles first, but that often leaves a little gap through which the puck can scoot. Horton taught Schoenfeld the proper way to get the stick flat on the ice, and as a result he broke up a lot more passes than he would have the old way.
