You can't stop forward momentum. You can skate in backward for all it matters, you just have to keep moving forward.

Also, after reading through the rules quickly, Schremp's penalty shot would be disallowed, as the high-stick rules still apply in a penalty shot, though I read in the paper they're thinking about liberalising shootout rules to inspire more creativity.
