Have you tried them:

1. pushing with both inside edges, and scraping the ice back, while stationary against the boards for support

2. same as 1, but pushing a teammate (teammate facing them) with mild resistance, so moving forward

3. pushing with the inside edge (of right skate in this case) while balancing on the other leg with stick on the ice for a little extra support.
