One of the principles we try to teach to all our goalies is making saves in front of the body whenever possible combined with following the puck all the way to your glove. Proper hand/arm position in front enables goalie to make saves in front while also covering more net & giving goalie ability to control the puck better. Pay attention to this always at practices as it is very easy to fall back to bad and lazy habits of pulling hands back and especially not following the puck all the way when making saves.
