I, like yourself love to screen the goalie to make up for skill level. I find you need to occupy the players and goalies to be very effective. Usually when I get knocked out of the way I will go back to where I was. The players when they try to knock you out of the crease, they in turn help in the screening attempt. I also find if you can screen the goalie at the last second it helps more. I usally will come from behind the goal line and go in front of him.
You really want to get the players off their game, take a swipe at the goalie without touching him. Gets everyone thinking about protecting the front which would help getting space for your teammates to work the puck around. Everyone has a role and yours is the funnest to me. Also you get no thanks when you don't deflect it. Well, at least some of the players I play against don't thank me..
