1) Cut towards the middle a little, slam on the brakes and curl towards the half boards. This gives me a few seconds to look for a passing opportunity. If none exists and a forward or defenseman is putting pressure on you, i would dump the puck into the corner and behind the net allowing my teammates to try and retrieve the puck and start the cycle.......
This is what I meant as well, in my option #1. Although the cut to middle I can only assume is a fake before you cut to the half boards.
