If my team has possesion of the puck in the offensive zone with the cycle or whatnot, or I'm stationary in a good scoring area, and if I have enough time, sometimes I'll try to pick a corner.
Low stickside is my shot of choice.
Being a right hander breakaways are backhand top shelf over the goalie's stick side shoulder all day.
You bring up a couple of good points as most goalies have their stickside on their right. Honestly I subconsciously hardly ever shoot glove hand being a left handed shot. I go five hole often and that works quite a bit ... you know fake shot stickside and tuck with the backhand five hole.
Rarely I will play against a guy who catches with his right hand and it does make me think more while out there.
