That's actually deceptively tricky

Last year I took a shift with my buddy's right handed stick for S&G. He uses a Forsberg so it wasn't TOO badly curved the wrong way. I actually got the puck and took a shot but instead of leaning into the stick and it supporting my weight I fell over

Usually when I cup the puck I can lean and push into it, but because it was on the backhand, it just slid on the ice...
