The terms of the week for this week are rebound, garbage goal and own goal. All of these terms have to do with goals and saves.

Rebound:  A rebound is a puck that is still in play after the goaltender has made a save.

Garbage Goal: A garbage goal is a goal that is scored a few feet away from the net. Garbage goals are often thought to be scored by players who wait around the crease for a rebound or loose puck.  Garbage goals earn their name because a player does not have to make a strategic nor fancy play he is just picking up the garbage.

Own Goal:  An own goal is exactly what it sounds like, a goal scored on the players own net.
