When you're standing still, follow the pass from your mates stick, get a nice, deep knee bend, keep your head following the puck until your blade contacts the ice, then look up and you're done. Practice it a bit.
I agree, the pass need to be between the legs on the ice. I call this the target zone. If you want the puck to take flight in your follow through, then have the puck approach the target zone off center towards the front foot. All you have to do is make a simple "C" cut with your heel to manuver into position for the shot. Then just use what MistaWrista say above.
