Where to Shoot to Score Goals

Used to be a saying that something like 85% of goals were scored low.

Not so much anymore...

How many people on here are playing against professional goaltenders?

This changed drastically during the 90's with the introduction of super-huge goaltending "pads".

Changed in the late 90's when standup goaltenders were beginning to get phased out.

Butterfly goaltending is far more effective than the old standup ways.

Also, other than C/A's, all goalie pads are the same size or smaller than the early 90's gear.

Around the net, going to the net is the first rule of every scorer

Length of the pads shot way up from the late 80s through the 90s. It allowed a goalie to go into a butterfly position and cover the entire bottom part of the net, where the majority of the goals were scored. Goalies were wearing pads to slightly above the low pant line. Now the pads go up to their shoulders!

While some thighrises may be extreme, as in the +3 that Lundy and Price have. That's more of a recent trend really. And butterfly goaltending didn't really take stage in the form it has now until the late 90's.

Even if you take the years right after the first lockout, most pads were +1 or 0, which the majority of goaltenders have now a days. And while it does offer more protection and coverage, it doesn't negate the fact that proper stick discipline and knee placement is key to stopping 5 hole shots. Otherwise, the puck still can trickle through quite easily.

It's still the hottopic even among goalies if thighrises are too large now a days. I think a +3 is large enough.

When I'm in a game I don't get spot-on accuracy but I like to aim for top corners, usually blocker side.

Interesting chart. Shows very few goals in the five hole.

It shows few shots from straight on went 5 hole. You change your angle and go 5-hole, the puck enters the net off center.

Awesome chart Jarick!

I usually aim top cheese too, cause (at least the level I play at) it's the easiest to score with. I kinda dropped the 5-hole tricks, as most of the goalies I play againts will not move enough to tuck it in there...

Anyway, great find, thanks!

As a goatender, that's what's hardest for me. I would maybe add high blocker around the shoulder area.

Interesting chart, though how many of those shots were rebounds off the pads that the next forward buried high in close?

Man are those posts ever sharp though. The few wide ones that went in probably bounced in off the back of the goalie. I've always wondered though with the occasional talk of changing things to increase scoring how it would work if they just changed the shape of the posts so that more pucks would go post and in.

I've seen changing the shape of the posts suggested before, the guy wanted to make them sort of a triangular shape, angling inside towards the net. They could slightly round off the point to make it safe so nobody gets impaled on the net, lol.

But with three sides, the side that angles in won't be very visible to the shooter.

5hole works if you can shoot hard enough around 2inches off the ground
