Hockey is a mental game.
On a breakaway, I hit the ice with my stick twice, in front of the puck, and I can basicly do any move after that. most of the time I wrist it home easely.
Last one I pulled, I hit the ice once with my stick, and the second time I do exactly the same thing, except that I stop the puck while the goalie thinks it's still behind the blade, and then I pushed it to my right from behind me with my left skate, go backhand and put it in the empty net.
Once a goalie told me it was a bad idea because after a couple of times, any goalie will wait untill I hit the ice a second time before commiting to the ice. What he didn't understand is that when a goalie's focus is on that move, it's much easier for me to deke him, and when I realise he's expecting me to hit the ice twice, I start hitting the ice only once, or three times.
