In some ways a breakaway might be easier than a penalty shot because you don′t have time to think about it. On a penalty shot you have more time to think and you know everybody′s watching you. A breakaway is just part of the game. Just go with the flow. Don′t think ‘Oh wow I′m on a breakaway.’ And if you miss just get the puck. Don′t get discouraged. Keep your head in the game.
This shot uses the same technique as a wrist shot only done on the backhand. Start with the puck on the heel of the blade and as you transfer your weight forward from your back foot to the front roll your wrists over and release the puck while pointing at the target on your follow through.
A lot of times a forward will deke himself out. He′ll have the goalie beat but he already has his mind made up that he′s going to do something else. He′ll actually fumble it before he can shoot it. Remember make the goalie make the save. Don′t make it easy for him.
