A lot of people have offered good suggestions.
Better breakouts, dump & chase......really anything that will pull their defenders out of position so that you can isolate them and open up skating/passing lanes.
Once in the offensive zone, you have two options: more puck control or pepper the net with shots.
You could set up with a high triangle or a high box (say tops of the faceoff circles and another player or two back even behind the center line). This will force their defenders to spread out more and will open up lanes for players to streak to the net. You'll have to be patient and wait for your opportunities, and you will need to make good clean passes, but lanes will open up.
Alternatively, you could decide just to pepper the net with shots. Maybe make it a point to park one guy in front to screen the goalie and make it your target to put 50+ shots on and crash the net every time. Eventually a few of them will go in unseen and there will be rebounds.
