13 seems to be a bit different than last year too with the new skating mechanics. Best advice so far based on the demo is work the puck around to the slot and use a wrister, using D as a screen works good too, but it takes a while to figure out how close you can get before they just poke it away.

Looks like you won't be able to force passes in 13 like you would have been able to in previous years, so keep an eye for the open man. Finding a trailer coming late seems to work well for me.

Skill stick takes a bit to get used to but just keep practicing in free skate and you'll get it figured. I find the advanced dekes fairly useless for the most part to be honest. The old Bombay triple deke works just as well.
