Tips are part of the game, don't always happen in the front of the net, definitely don't always happen intentially, sometimes come off our own defenders, part of the game the goalies need to be better about just as much as the skaters.
I donít disagree. Unfortunately both of our goalies rely on their positioning and fundamentals to get the job done. I doubt either will get much better at picking up deflections. Athleticism cannot be taught. It is up to our defensive coverage to get better and more physical, and Q must abandon that dumb low collapse system that leaves the points wide open. This is true at ES and on the PK. Opps teams feed off of it.
