Always follow through, in the direction of where you want it to go. For wrist shots, try pulling the ball back behind you farther than you normally would on ice, it makes it easier to build up the speed of your shot, and with a good follow through, gives you plenty of time to get the ball up where you want it.

Haha yeah, I tried flexing and shooting during a practice once. The results were hardly desirable .
I'll give the wrist-snapping and follow through a shot.

Much appreciated, everyone!
