At a scrimmage in the first half of last year, I found myself in front of two defenders and a goalie, with all the time in the world. I thought it would be neat to try toe dragging a snapshot. Everything happened as I’d imagined, and the puck sailed into the back of a mostly open net.
After practice last night, I remembered I wanted to explore this more. The goalie was still around so I went in for a couple shots. She squared to the puck. Perfect! I dragged, then shot for the left post. The puck got by the goalie cleanly, flew just inside the post, and hit the back of the net.
Did it again right afterwards to be really really sure I had it down.
