Steve Valiquette's next segment on MSG discusses same-side one-timers. Although these type of plays do not cross the "Royal Road" all the time, they are still dangerous situations (Green Shots) for goalies to manage.
Valiquette jumps in the net and discusses the difficulty that comes with tracking the puck in tight to the crease, but finding ways to be aware of where the eventual shooter will release the puck on the one-timer. Valiquette also talks about how to manage getting your feet set when you have very little time to react or read the play.
Be sure to check out all of Valiquette's videos on MSG and stay tuned for more videos from him as time goes on!
