There are many ways to stop the puck. The oldest one is the [[stand-up style|"Stand-up"]] style. In this style you stop the puck from a standing position, not going down. The Goalies may bend over to stop the puck with their upper body or may kick the puck. Those saves made by kicking are known as kick saves or skate saves. They may also simply use their stick to stop it. This was the style seen in the early NHL and was most commonly used up until the early 90's. One of the more notable goalies who was last seen using stand up was [[Kirk McLean]], but most of the goalies from earlier decades such as [[Jacques Plante]] were goalies who were considered pure stand up goalies.

There were rules in place in the early years of the NHL that restricted goalies' movements - goalies were not allowed to go down, which is WHY goalies like Plante were considered "stand up goalies."
