Low, glove side works for me. On my off-wing.

Only works if you have enough speed and don't over use the move.

I usually just shoot it over the net. Beats the goalie EVERY time.

I kinda like to come in on the side of the ice, cut in a bit, and go high blocker side...unless the goalies big, then...i just shoot and crash the net

disguising your shot is key

a wrister is the best shot to take close in with a quick deke to change the release point and make the goalie blink

if you have a feel for the goalie being off-balance or know he has a weakness...

otherwise try to get the goalie moving and slide it back the other way
wait for the goalie to move and go five hole
if you are a left, go low stick or high blocker
use the d as a screen
go to nhl.com and watch the video of the best goalscorers and match up what they do with what you are able to do best

Aim for the net, seriously, look for a place where you can see the net and shoot there.

Statistically, it's low, stick-side, if I remember correctly.

I believe you're right

If the goalie is a righty, the area just over the right pad and under his blocker is kinda like a blind spot. If you're out of ideas on a breakaway thats usually a good fail safe.

Upper grandma (topshelf), naturally.

All Finns now can stop laughing about my "i'm back - olen selkä" translation.

I think he asked the latter. The word "from" should preclude the "?". That's why there was no usual comeback of the thread starter...
The closer to the net, the better. Start thinking about shooting once you cross the blue line if you carry the puck. Yea... Just don't shoot from behind the goal line.

offwing, top shelf, stickside. If that's covered, head high right between the eyes. Guaranteed to have top side open next time.
