An easy way to practice alone is to pass to yourself using the kickplate along the boards. Pass the puck hard enough to rebound to your position and onetime the puck either with a snapshot or slapshot. You can even just keep the puck going back and forth without shooting on goal, just redirect or "onetime" the puck back at the kickplate along the bottom of the boards.

I did this for years and it helped a lot back when I sucked in the 1970s as a 10 year old. The reason this helps is that YOU control the speed of the pass and eventually you get better and faster with the timing.

I would venture to guess that your main problem is clenching up on the stick and not relaxing during game situations. A deer in headlights kind of thing. Relax ... cradle and deliver the puck rather than have it explode because you tensed up too stiff.
