Yesterday, played first game as goalie... Only allowed one goal, we won
The one that went in... committed and went down too early and it was weird, knew exactly where the shot was going and how it was going to get past me but couldn't do anything to react in time to prevent it.

Other than that though, I definitely was playing very active outside of my net, very much being a third defenseman -- probably wouldn't get away with it at a higher level of rec play, but in this league I skate better in full goalie gear than a lot of the others out there...

Definitely think I'm going to be a more 'standup' style than trying anything butterfly like, feel like I offer up 85% of the net if I go down - would rather react to the shots than try to hope I'm in the right spot to block them (and it doesn't help that I'm only about 5'7...).
