It's being a good skater coupled with just having a good shot in general. When you start getting your practice shot, standing still, to be hard and accurate under the crossbar consistently than you will have a better shot while skating as well. If you can barely get it over blocker height standing still your shot still has a lot of improvement to go.

In general, shooting on the move, you want to be moving in a way that doesn't force you to go out of your way to get your shot off. Often that will mean cutting across the offensive zone from the off wing (stick on the inside of the ice) because this allows you to have the puck behind you in a convenient location to lean into a wrister as you come across the ice. It's also a pretty effective way to get a screen and fool the goalie, making him move side to side without projecting where you're going to shoot the puck. Ovie does it all the time.
