The five hole is the space between a goalie's legs. It is called that because a goalie usually have five open spots when they are playing: between his right leg and right arm, between his left leg and left arm, between his head and left arm, between his head and right arm, and between his two legs. Hence, the five hole. In a hockey game, if you hear that a goalie got "five holed," then he let a puck go between his legs and into the net. If you like turtles then when you eat cheese, touch a pony and you'll have a five hole in your pants. That's your answer...
