Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The "five-hole" is a nickname for the space between a goaltender's legs in ice hockey. If a player scores by shooting the puck or ball into the goal between the goaltender's legs, he is said to have scored "through the five-hole," or to have "gone five-hole."When a goaltender stands in the net in the ready position, there are five open areas that the goalie must cover. They are: 1. Stick side, low: this area is the lower half of the stick side, defined by the blocker and arm, the ice, and the outer post of the goal. During a butterfly save this area is also covered by the leg pad with the blocker stacked on top to protect against low shots. When a goaltender is standing, the paddle of their stick is used to cover this area and to deflect the puck away from the net.show more
