I want to do awesome hockey stops

I'd appreciate anyone that can provide some tips here. I can already do hockey stops both ways, but they are not sudden or abrupt enough. I play the off wing (righy shot playing left wing) and I want to be able to race up the wing (I have good speed), forcing the defense back up, and then hit the hooks, giving a second or two to slide the puck into the slot for a streaking center or winger, or take a quick shot or do a soft dump.

look at Kovalchuk's play at 2:55 here, that's what I'm looking for.



I constantly work on my stops, but I just can't execute something like that. What do I have to do, is there a certain hollow on my skates that would make it easier? Do I just need to force myself to stop shorter and shorter, taking falls as they come?

Thanks in advance.
