Carey Price demonstrates the "dead arm one knee down"

Not a lot of attention is given to goaltending techniques in media, but a September day seemed like the perfect time to showcase one.

Often Chris Boyle is asked about what he means when he talks about specific goaltending techniques, and luckily there's a video out there by InGoal Magazine that Carey Price volunteered for to demonstrate the "dead arm one knee down", also known as the VHS (vertical-horizontal stance).

Price shows the versatility of this move in the video, which is kind of confusing because he all but dropped it from his repertoire last season in favour of copying Jonathan Quick's tactic, which had very poor results for both goalies during the season.
