I’m three feet out of the net that’s only four feet wide, two-thirds NHL width, and the angle is well cut down. Elmer is staring inside my post, stick side, even telegraphing his shot.
And then the ball sails just under the crossbar into the opposite side of the goal, over my catching glove.
Clearly delighted, Elmer is stickhandling playfully again, having rediscovered his generous nose for the net.
