Often what I gotta remeber is to ensure that I finish high and to release my wrist and point to the direction like when releasing a wrister.

do you guys ever have the same problem once in a while?
I can't do much of anything good when I'm warming up. It takes awhile to get my muscles loosened up and in "hockey mode." Don't judge you're ability when you're cold.

Also, I think you may just be over thinking it. Don't try and hit the puck hard as possible, instead focus on getting good solid contact. And if you're using a composite stick aim for the ice/court just in front of the puck, as opposed to the puck itself. This will help the stick wind up a bit before it makes contact with the puck.
