From Practice to Game

With the second half of the ball hockey season coming up, I'm starting to identify my strengths and weaknesses playing consistently at a fairly high level (for me).

I own a very, very good wrist shot. I can score from anywhere, at any angle, and at any distance.

But I can't do it in a game.

I seem to get lost in the offensive zone, my passing is off, and my shots are woeful.

I can't even get it going in friendly scrimmages or pickup games. Just in one-on-one situations with the goalie, or shots on an empty net.

Maybe most players can do this, but I rarely see any of them snipe like I can. In warmups and shootouts, that is. I always get 'wicked shot' or 'wow' if I'm out on the rink working on it.

I always end up wussing out after a poor performance at forward and going back to my more natural defensive position. I've tried rushing the ball and playing offensive D, but I still can't translate my shooting- and sometimes passing- into game situations.

Help!
