I assume you have the general mechanics of a wrist or slap shot down.
When you get to your release, the puck will move from the middle of the stick and off the toe. Therefore where ever you point the toe in your follow through is the direction with which the puck will travel.
You have to, however, keep the toe pointed in towards the inside of the blade. To practice this just shoot and follow through by turning your blade inward until the tip is pointed at the ground. After awhile of this exaggerated movement it will just be natural for you to follow through correctly.
As far as shooting while playing:
Bend your knees.
Keep your head up.
Look at your target.
Shoot and follow through with your toe pointing at the target.
