Fake Mohawk move with Puck?

I see guys doing this move from time to time but never heard what it's called. It's when the puck carrier is along the boards and pretends to pivot backwards with one skate (basically Mohawks the skate heel moving forward) and immediately brings this skate forward again as to fake the pressure out.

Does this make sense?

Yeah I'll try and phrase it again and you can tell me if I'm right?

A lefty goes down the left wing, crosses into the oppositions end over the blue line, and just when their space along the boards is being closed off by a defenseman they pretend they're going to turn back up to the blue line, and use that headfake time to take the puck along the boards and squeeze past the defense so they can continue behind the net

I don't know what it's called, I just have always called it "Selling the inside", because it's just another move to me that's an attempt to trick the dman you're moving the puck/play back to the middle of the ice. The reason they work, obviously, is because a defenseman doesn't want to give up the middle of the ice, so if you suddenly scare them that the play will go there; they'll react suddenly and with less poise.

Something like that. Some dude pulled it on me the other day as he was pretending to stop with the puck and go the other way. I was reading the body and assumed he was going to stop and reverse back, but he just did this Mohawk move where he rotated his body but kept moving forward. He took his left foot and brought it heel to heel for a split second lifted his right foot but put his right foot back down and then brought left foot back parallel to right and kept going. Totally juked me.

I see Crosby and Neal do it.

Yeah, that's the move. Quick Mohawk. They call it the "Inside Mohawk."

The Mohawk people have been known to walk heel to heel frequently.
