A pair of practice videos, 4-14-09

Nice save by Ben Dragavon in the first one. This was a drill that took place on less than half the field (about 40 yards) and I believe each team could have no more than four touches before a shot had to be taken.

Next I focused more on Chris Eylander, who got hit in his right knee making a save and stayed down for a while, prompting trainers’ attention. Eylander is trying to come back from a knee injury. He managed to get up and keep playing and told me it was just knee-to-knee contact. Both he and Dragavon made some very nice saves (more by Dragavon, I would say) in what was a very spirited practice today.
