In the line of fire: High school hockey goalies

The hockey goalie.

They are the most covered and well-equipped players on the ice, yet, at times, can feel so very naked.

A goalie tries hard to keep the puck in front of the net so that flashing red light doesn't go off behind it.

The hockey goalie is the last line of defense, the player who can cover up a team's mistakes and keep an opponent from putting crooked numbers on the scoreboard.

A good goalie can keep a team in a game, a great one can carry it to a title.

A team gets a bench, a mischievous player sits in a box, but a goalie gets his/her very own crease in which they can produce some hockey magic.

It's a good thing when people say a goalie is "standing on his head".

It's a bad thing if they keep telling you to protect the "five-hole."

Quick feet, soft hands, and a short memory are key for a goale. Those who can forget about the past often succeed in the future.

Great technique is beautiful, but a goalie with a strong mind is truly divine.
