When skating down the ice, and say you are one-on-one with the goalie, you are primarily skating with your chest facing the goalie in forward motion. Do folks more often shoot from that stance, with stick directly out to the side, or is it better to practice trying to drop back your back foot, shift weight backwards (against direction of motion), and then shoot that way?
I either snap a quick shot when my chest is facing the goalie, or if i have an extra second or two i pull the puck back towards my back foot and away from my body so that im shooting across my body in a more traditional wrist shot position.
