One thing I've always been told and pass onto others who listen, LOOK BEFORE YOU SHOOT. It's a very simple piece of advice, but it's a very common piece of mistake that almost all beginners and even some mid-range players make. If you don't look at the bloody net before you shoot, you have no idea what's open. Of course this is only useful if you have enough accuracy to place the puck where you want it.

And what others have said about shooting the puck. I've noticed a lot of low to mid range players won't shoot the puck unless they're in close and feel like they're gonna score. I think it has something to do with the fact that they don't really recognize if there's a man in front of the net, which brings me to the point of go to the net.
