The Knee

from the Denver Post:

When an NCAA hockey player takes a knee in front of a puck-handler preparing to take a slap shot, the defender isn’t praying. He’s hoping.
Hoping the puck hits him solid.
Hoping the pain goes away and injury doesn’t send him out of the game.
Talent usually gets teams to the NCAA Tournament, but the combination of skill and sacrifice is typically what gets teams to the Frozen Four.
“For us it’s simple,” Air Force coach Frank Serratore said of his team’s shot-blocking philosophy. “If you refuse to do it, you won’t play.”
