In the lower level pickup that we play in, I usually end up playing as a conservative D-man. The "top" players in that league try to cut to the middle and eventually wind up shooting wide or hitting my skates.
The best move I can think of is to fake to the outside, then cut inside with speed, throw the brakes on, and take the shot short side. If you have a quick enough release you'll be shooting around the defenceman as he tries to stop, and you may catch the goalie a half-inch out of position.
