To anyone who cares to enlighten me,
I am frustrated with my inability to score goals in bagm mode. I can score, but not very often. What am I doing wrong and how do those that do score easily and often, do it?
I understand the game (actual hockey) but for the life of me even good scoring opportunities are thwarted by amazing saves.
You gotta learn how to shoot I find, the best way is to pull the puck to the side and then pick your spot from there. You'll get used to which spots work in each situation but you gotta know how to put it there.
I don't know what level you have AI learning on but if you can score with a clean shot on net then the defence typically try more the stop the shot rather than block the pass and cross crease passes and high slot one timers are gonna become easier to pull off and score on
Do the back-hand fore-hand [common deke] or shoot from the left side of the ice to the right top corner of the net, going 'across' the goalie'. Use the cross-crease, use your whole team or set up your Defenders for one t's to the goalie/net.
Or if 'glitch-goaling'' doesn't work, you could just try the game-play on different skill levels.
