I almost never score 5-hole. Just about all the goalies in my league are butterfly goalies, so the best way to score seems to be one-timers (because they don't have fast lateral movement) or rebounds (they don't move around well on the ice). I've also had success getting close and freezing the goalie by doing a shoulder dip/leg kick/head fake and then just jamming the puck into the net from the crease as they anticipate a deke.

The 5-hole thing worked great though playing against old guys who never dropped into butterfly. Skate up, fake forehand to backhand and tuck it 5-hole as they moved across the crease.
