Goal
i. The modern goal net is 6 feet wide between the posts, 4 feet high from the ice surface to the bar and 44 inches deep at the ice surface level.
ii. A goal is scored when the puck fully crosses the goal line. It must be hit into the net by a stick held below shoulder level or be deflected into the net off a player, his equipment or his skate - but it cannot be deliberately kicked in with a skate or handed in with a glove.
Goal Crease
A area, marked in blue, in front of the goal - designed to protect the goalie from interference.  Opponents are not allowed in the crease unless the puck precedes them.
Goal Judge
Goal judges sit on the outside of the playing area behind the goals. Their main function is to indicate by a light, that a goal has been scored. If there is doubt as to the validity of the goal, the goal judge will consult with the referee. All shots on goal, successful or not, are entered on a sheet and the statistics added to the netminders' totals on the game sheet. If the goal is moved from its moorings, the goal judge flashes the light to indicate to the referee that he should stop play while the goal is replaced.
Goal Line
A red line in each end zone which runs the width of the rink.  The goal cage is positioned in the centre of and behind the goal line so that the posts meet the goal line at ice level.
Goalie
One of the terms used to describe the member of the ice hockey team who wears specially designed equipment - large leg pads, a helmet/face cage, a wide bladed stick, one glove similar to a baseball catcher's and the other, for holding the stick, with a large square pad called a blocker on the reverse side. Other terms include cage-man, goalkeeper, goaltender, netminder and stopper.

Other terms include cage-man, goalie, goaltender, netminder and stopper.
Goalkeeper Pads
The netminder's leg pads must not be more than 30 cm at their widest point.
Goaltender
One of the terms used to describe the member of the ice hockey team who wears specially designed equipment - large leg pads, a helmet/face cage, a wide bladed stick, one glove similar to a baseball catcher's and the other, for holding the stick, with a large square pad called a blocker on the reverse side. Other terms include cage-man, goalie, goalkeeper, netminder and stopper.
Goaltender Win
A goalie win is always credited to the goaltender in net when his team scores the game winning goal. 
Here are some examples :
i. His team scores the only goal of the game after only 30 seconds into the 1st period but the goalie gets an injury one minute later and has to leave the game. He gets replaced and the second goalie plays the rest of the game (58 min. 30 sec.). The win is still credited to first goalie despite the fact that he only played 90 seconds of the game. The only thing that matters is who was in the net when the game winning goal was scored.
ii. A goalie enters the game with his team leading 2-0 and it eventually wins 3-2, he gets credited with the win.
iii. The game winning goal is scored when the winning team has an empty net - the pulled goalie gets the win.
