A flip or saucer pass is the most effective pass when you have a man between you and your intended target. A good saucer pass floats eight to 10 inches off the ice and lands flat close to the blade of a teammate′s stick. Practice is the key. You don′t want to be firing the puck too high where it can′t be controlled by your teammate. A player who can make an effective saucer or flip pass is worth his or her weight in gold.
The key to a backhand shot is the element of surprise. Since the shot is seldom practiced or used in a game many goalies aren′t used to the shot. They′re not used to how the puck is going to come off the stick whether it′s going to go low or high left or right. And when you don′t have to waste time moving the puck to your forehand you don′t allow the goaltender time to set up.
I think the backhand shot is one of the most seldom used but effective shots in a sniper′s arsenal especially when taken from in close. Sometimes you don′t have the time to move the puck onto your forehand. That′s where a backhand shot comes into play.
Everybody loves to skate with the puck and stickhandle through the opposition defenses on the way to the net. Still it′s much more effective if you let the puck do the work for you. Passing is without a doubt the best way to move the puck.
