Seriously I don't know. My problem is that I always try to make the perfect play to score, whereas you it seems you shoot from anywhere (otherwise it would be impossible to take 40 shots).

Just like in real life, you gotta make the goalie move or wait till someone screens him before you shoot. This last one seems to work a lot in NHL11. Often on the replay you see the goalie trying to see past his D or an opposing player and he gets down on the butterfly early leaving everything on top open.

And most important I find is rebounds. It became a habit for me to always shoot low and it's been working pretty well. You either get a rebound or score between the pad and blocker ala Gionta.
Yeah, the way I score the most often is scoring on a rebound after taking a low shot from the point. I wouldn't say I shoot from anywhere. The main problem I'm having is Price being absolutely terrible in this game. The AI can walk over the blueline and take a wrist shot and score.
