1. Work on your puck skills while keeping your head up. You cannot see plays developing or open shooting lanes with your head down.
2. Develop a quick release on your snap shot. The faster and more unpredictable your shot is the harder it is to stop. Obviously to go along with this is accuracy, you cannot score if your shot misses the intended target.
3. Practice your lateral movement ability in your skating. Getting the goalie to move across his crease and forcing him to play a different angle on the puck will open up net for you to shoot at.
4. After that the next step is to play relaxed and not worry about scoring. Just skate hard and make the plays that you see. Once scoring gets into your head you start gripping your stick tighter and you will tend to make more mistakes with the puck. Just know some games it will not be your night while others you will get the feeling that no one can stop you.
