How would that be done without one compromising the other?
in my opinion, its all up to your goalie, NOT your coach. most goalies i have played with prefer you don't try to block a shot from the top of the circle and above, as they are confident they can stop 99% of those shots. the main thing in my opinion is communication with your goalie.
