I'm finding the same problem. My wife got me a slide board for last Christmas and it's been great to shoot off of because it's a nice slick surface. I didn't count on the difference between practicing in sneakers and playing in skates on ice, though. I'll start practicing in roller blades and see if that helps.
As for hitting the goalie in the chest. . . I'm not sure what you're after. Trying to pick corners? Do you practice your backhand? How about your snap shot from in close? Shooting around a screen? Don't just practice your wrist shot. Try to create game simulations and practice them until they're second nature.
