"Butterfly Pad Save
Goaltender uses this save with a lot of traffic in front of the net
or against a deking forward. When compared to the "Skate Save", the
goalie covers more area giving themselves a better chance of saving
the shot. This save, on the other hand, makes the goalie at risk to
rebounds in front of the net.
All "Butterfly Pad Saves" begin from the "Ready Position".
Knees - on the rink surface supporting the player's weight…
carry the goalie's body weight… Toes - pointing outward
creating a "V" with the shins… Upper Body - remains in an
upright position to cover the top of the net… Hands - hold
the stick blade in the space between the knees, 3 inches in front of
the knees and with the blade at a 90 degree angle with the ice….
Pads - flat on the rink surface... Body - after the save,
gets back into the "Ready Position" as quickly as possible."
