Had four breakaways and ON ALL FOUR the puck bounced or rolled off my stick. Best scoring chance was a clean pick in our end that I could not settle the puck down, stuck and went in my skates, had to kick it back up, finally got it settled right when I see the goalie hunched to one side, then as I go for the deke he pokes it off.

On the plus side, I took a slapper so hard the goalie went "WOW" as he caught it. That's rare for me.

Just a forgettable game pretty much.
Where did you make contact with the puck?

Alot of players do it on the mid portion of the blade but i've been doing it on the heel more and it works better for me.

Plus if you're in close I highly suggest just tilting the blade and popping it top shelf instead of deking. Even a fake of that if you want to will work, then pop it right through the five hole.
