Sharks goaltending coach Thomas Speer simply positions two shooters just above the face-off dots on either side, gives them each a number (one or two, we told you it’s simple) and then with the goalie positioned in the middle of the crease, calls out “one” or “two” and the goalie pushes to that shooter, who is loading up to score almost as soon as their number is called.
The focus is on making that push on the skates rather than sliding across.

love this drill
Excellent drill, I really like this one.Makes the goalie disciplined on staying on his feet before reacting and deciding the way he is going to make the save.
I do have one question though. Where are the goalies eyes when he starts the drill in the top middleof his crease?
