"Deflections and Rebounds
Shots off deflections or rebounds beat even the best goalie.
Deflections. As the puck travels to the net, a teammate
slightly changes the shot's trajectory. The Goaltender finds this
shot almost impossible to save.
Rebounds. Goaltenders save low shots with their skates or
pads. This usually causes a playable rebound. When teammates "go to
the playable rebound. When teammates "go to the net" thinking
rebound after a shot and shot quickly, then the team's scoring
chances greatly improve... Whether a deflection or a rebound, use
the stick to get the puck into the goal."
