I don't have the greatest puckhandling skills as a goalie (play goalie normal handed but I shoot right handed when I skate out) but I am pretty aggressive. If I see that the opposing team's forward is going to beat my D-Man to a puck, I will play it and either try to put it up the boards to a teammate or, if that is not a good option, I will sling it around the boards behind my own net to stall and give my team more time to get back into our own zone.

This has backfired once... or twice... or a few times over the years with embarrassing results. BUT, it has also resulted in me catching the opposing team on a shift change a time or two and springing a forward on a breakaway goal.

More often than not, it just results in me preventing the opposing team from setting up an easy forecheck or getting an uncontested scoring chance.
