How to protect the puck going to the net.

In this video clip you see an excellent example of how to protect the puck with your body from a defenceman when going in on net for a scoring chance. The Captain of the L. A. Kings, Brown, extends his left leg and uses his upper body to shield the puck from the D-player and move from his forehand to backhand for a play on net to score. Every young player should watch the technique. The video is in slow motion.
