The Art Of Shot Blocking

from the Edmonton Sun,
It's simple, really. All you have to do is throw your body in front of a slapshot. When you see a 220-pound defenceman wind up his scientifically engineered carbon fibre stick, you dive in front of the frozen puck like a secret service agent taking one for the president. Why? So your goalie, you know, the guy with all the padding, is spared the hassle.
