My train of thought is that it depends on how close you are to the shooter if you broke the distance between the shooter and goalie into quarters.
In Q1 anything you can get on the shot should be enough to send it wide or still allow your goalie to adjust to a slower puck.
In Q2 you have to be a wall never reach in with your stick especially if the puck gets off the ice only block it here if you can position yourself directly in the the path or else get out of the way.
In Q3 and Q4 tie up any forward looking for a tip or trying to screen and get out of the way do what you can to always keep a lane open between your goalie and the puck. Again
never never never
reach in with your stick and that goes double when the puck is off the ice.
