Don't hit "down" hit in front - the idea is to load your stick not to knock a hole in the ice and incidentally contact the puck.
Your follow through still has to be forward, so you're pushing "forward" its just that the impact point is grazing the ice before it hits the puck.
If it feels like you're losing power and momentum down and not transferring it forwards then listen to your body.
