Yep, here you go.

One: Make sure that you cup the puck.
Two: Make sure you start with the puck towards the heel of the blade.
Three: As you start that wrist shot, allow the puck to move towards the center of the blade, heading towards the toe of the blade.
Four: Just before the puck gets to the toe, release the shot and roll your wrist.
Five: Rolling your wrist will help make the shot accurate.

Now, starting with the puck at the heel, will allow the puck to spin as it moves towards the toe. Here comes the science! Once in motion, always in motion!

As the puck starts to spin from heel to toe, it adds a little centrifugal force to the puck and it acts like a spinning tire. This will allow it to fly flat and straight, right to where ever you pointed the tip of your blade during the wrist roll.

Hope this helps!
