What is Waffle-boarding?

A quick swiping movement of the blocker to make a save, usually in desperation.

Sporting Charts explains Waffle-boarding

A rarely used term, waffle-boarding comes from the fact the blocker, especially pre-1980 almost resembled a waffle-looking piece of equipment. A waffle-board save has become quite rare due to many goaltenders using positioning and angling to make saves. If it is used in today's game, it's usually out of desperation when the goalie thinks they are beat.
