What do you do with the Game on your stick?

Have you ever found yourself in the clear late in the third? Have you ever dreamed about it? Ever been the winning shooter in the Shootout?

Just wondering if people have their own "Go-to-moves" on a breakaway, in the shootout, or basically whenever they need to score.

I know me, I'll shoot 75% of the time. I drive as hard as I possibly can, pull the puck from my backhand to the forehand (I shoot right), and snap the puck 5-hole. If I'm coming down the left side (I usually play Left-Wing) I go far-side low, I can hit that far post pretty well without seeing it (muscle-memory?).

If I do deke, it's the usual fake-forehand to backhand roof.

What about you guys?

100% of the time I do:

1) Come in with a lot of speed
2) Fake the forehand shot, including the leg fake and all.
3) Beat the goalie on the backhand.


In penalty shots/shootouts/breakaways I am 13/15 (11/12 on the shootout, actually got beat for the first time 3 days ago ). To be fair though it was only fitting...that goalie had my number all night, I had about 11 shots on goal and he was unbelievable, though one beat him high blocker but hit the bar.

Even if the goalie knows what im going to do he still 95% of the time takes the bait and goes down for the fake shot, leaving me lots of room upstairs to beat him on the backhand.


Edit - I was just talking about since i was 19 and went into adult leagues, so those numbers are just from the past 3 years.

i've never had a breakaway like you said, but i've had that happen with 2 on 1 's twice.both times i was in that situation, i did the same thing . faked the pass and went high glove side. both times i scored and we won the game. once when i was 15 and it clinched our tournament in overtime.( i got mvp yeah!!!) and once in junior in the late third period of an otherwise nothing game .
my go to breakaway move has always been high glove wrister. i've had lots of success with that and i 've had goalies who did stop it tell me that it hurt their hand. those old goalie gloves weren't as big as they are today.

The only shootout I took in minor hockey, I was the last shooter to keep us alive in an elimination game at a tournament and I hit the post. That one took a while to get over.

In rec leagues and whatnot, I've often been in situations like that. I usually don't have anything planned out, but my default if nothing else presents itself and I'm on a clear break is the pretty standard fake forehand, backhand, roof. I'm usually coming in full boar, and the goalie generally bites on it.

whatever I've been comfortable with + instinct. If I don't like my backhand I'll stay away from it. But usually no set plan, just look for the white of the net as you're coming in, if I see no hole then I'll try to make one.

I'm trying to have a quicker release, but it's tough to teach/learn to have a quick shot. Just something you gotta keep drilling yourself on until you have it.

Needed a goal. Late in the third on a break away.

25% of the time I'd go in right up the gut fake shot, forehand, backhand, top shelf (a la Sidney Crosby)

75% of the time I'd go in with hard strides shad to the right (I'm a righty) shade back over to the left, 'craddle' the puck, come into the slot, snap a quick shot just over the pads far post (a la Kovelchuk [I did it first tho =p]) <--- that's my go to move.

i just had a huge championship game using the warrior dolomite for the first time. it was round 8 of the shootout, and this goalie was pretty good. as i skated to the right side i unloaded a snapshot and hit top corner and just crossed the line.

I either go in fast and hope I catch the goalie offguard by just changing my speed a little bit and shoot, or I (I'm a lefty) I go in from the right and cut across, fake a shot, hope the goalie bites, and then drag it to the left and rip it home.

That's damn funny, I do the exact same move about 90% of the time, roofing backhands near or inside the crease is one of the best feelings in hockey.

Otherwise, I shoot a lot, being a goalie most of the time, I've got the butterfly zone (under the blocker/above the pad) sorted out pretty well.

skate in from the left side, make the goalie move laterally, and go forehand, works almost every time

I like to do Sam Gagner's shoot-out move a lot, I don't beat goalie's the way he does but I can score most the time, or I shoot 5-hole.

Here's Gagner's move.

alots of speed, start cutting to the right, as the goalie starts to follow quick stop and thrown it in the 5 hole.

no set plan....just put the puck between the posts any way legally possible....I do have a tendancy to try and go up under the crossbar, which my teammates aren't terribly fond of because it really does leave much of a rebound...

Had a chance last night, 6-6 late in the game, pinch in from the point, get the puck right in the slot, all kinds of time. quick snapper right into....






The goalie's chest.

Breakaways (which never happen unless I block a shot and win a footrace), over the shoulder stick side, every time.

I go in full speed and wrist/snap one five-hole/short side.

Or, I go in slowly and fake a shot and score on the forehand.

When I still played hockey, I just went in with speed, and I used my long stick to my advantage, I'd usually lean right, and then stickright, toe drag n pull stick left.

Works EVERYTIME. In all seriousness, I'm not all that great on the shootout/breakaway, but speed, puck movement, and a quick forehand to backhand top shelf shot usually works.

I'm a left-handed shot and I come down the left wing with good speed. I come in on the angle and show nothing until I'm almost directly in front of the net so that I get the goalie to go across the crease. Then I bring the puck to my back foot and shoot top corner against the grain. Never fails.

I absolutely love the double deke. Fake shot, backhand, forehand, score.

I play left wing my go to is to fly down the left wing fake a shot at about the bottom of the circle. then I quickly cut to the right, and go right across the front of the crease and stuff it five hole as the goal tried to go from post to post. If the five hole isn't an option I try and lift it high on the far side.
