I didn't want to play the game, but I was the only person on my team who felt that way, so we played. it turned out better than I expected; the forwards backchecked much better, and because of that, our breakouts finally worked well. The other team hardly ever had possession in our zone. As the game wore on, they finally really realized we had no goalie, and just started putting shots on net from anywhere.

On the plus side, I made a pretty nice kick save on a breakaway
Yeah. That's the trick right there. Hell, in low-level beer league, that's pretty much the best strategy whether there's a real goalie in there or not.

Firing hard shots right at the middle of the net is very effective when there's just a guy in skater stuff standing there. You'd have to be a total nutjob to just put your ribs right in front of slapshots all night.
