I also make some decent plays in the offensive zone.. nice passing plays.. and i rarely get rewarded for them

our game was a good game.. im just pissed some games i do well.. others i **** the bed

Shoot from everywhere and anywhere if you cant score. Have your lines crash the net and just throw everything on net.

The penguins have finally snapped their losing streak!!!! I beat the Coyotes 2-1 in a really good game. Toffoli scored his 1st career goal in this game and continues his hot pace with 3 points in 3 games, hell he had an empty net to shoot on but he got killed so he wasn't able to get a good enough shot off. Jeffrey made it 2-1 in the 3rd and that was the game. Honestly couldn't be happier, Toffoli is absolutely amazing. He can even hit to, he had two big hits in this game. I'm done my games for this block and can't wait for the double advance tomorrow.

all my lines are set to crash the net.. trust me thats my style of play.. if you dont notice in club games.. (and IRL) when we're in the offensive zone, I always go right to the front of the net and stand there and try to create a screen and get garbage goals.. it's just etched in me to play that way, so naturally I do.

i've cut back on dumping on net in fear of being accused for pulling a Stockey..
I try to also steer away from the high slot shot.. since it seems that also annoys people.. although everyone else still does it..

I do one timers from the point a lot.
I do one times down low near the goal line trying for a rebound out front (it works maybe at a 10% rate)

I just dont know.. the season is still young.. so I'm not gonna stress that much about it, but it's frustrating not getting rewarded for pulling off plays that should work.


Oh and kind of unrelated.. the tripping penalties in this game are ridiculous.. haha I also hate when it's a computer controlled player that gets a penalty and not even me.

EDIT: on a side note.. can you upload created plays to your team?

yes i think you can.

And if you have them all set and you cant score then switch em up. Have you big physical line crash the net, have you skiller players overload and have your 2nd line work the puck behind the net. If your constantly doing the same thing (crashing the net) the cpu will automatically adjust and just shut you down. Mix it up, dump and chase, get in the zone fire it on net, enter the zone and go around the outside and then reverse it back up to the D or send it around the boards to your winger or far Dman. Idk man i cant really talk because i have a hard time scoring as well. Playing against the computer on Superstar doesnt help because well playing CPU and playing an actual user is a night and day difference.

Also gotta remember every time you take a low percentage shot you risk giving up puck possession for a ****** scoring chance. To me, not worth it. Keep the puck and try for a better scoring chance. Don't get me wrong, if you have a screen and an open shot take that every time, that's not low percentage. I'm just talking about shots that rarely go in from bad angles, better to keep it and get a better chance. Who cares if you get outshot 20-10 if your 10 shtos are all good chances and they only have 5 out of 20.

Perfect example, my buddy and I would play ALL the time and our games were always close, but i would take my time and setup my plays and i would win 3-2 with 8 shots and he would have like 26 and he would get sooo pissed.

they lost all of my respect when they introduced the online pass, I mean if I want to save money and buy a used game why can't I? I already pay $60 a year for Xbox live why do I need to shell out another $5 just to play online??? Greedy ********...

Honestly, the entire defensive scheme on my team is pants on head retarded. No backchecking, defense that just lets people walk by, overall idiocy which is absolutely killing me right now.
