Goalie with opposite hands

I might be shooting on a goalie who's hands are switched (blocker on left, glove on right) and it kinda throws me off for where to shoot. Any tips ? I'm a lefty.

Shoot where there's an opening? Just like any other goalie. I guess the glove being on the other side might be a little weird, but it shouldn't be bad. If anything, you have a better chance of beating him blocker side...

Shoot for the net. Don't look at the goalie.

(Easier said than done, I know)

This really only alters my game if I'm planning on deking. If I'm shooting I'm still typically aiming at the same targets. When I'm going in to deke it crosses my mind a little though.
