This is a go-to for me, if the goalie has that 5-hole open when I’m approaching and I don’t have room to cut to center I’ll often try to snap it through without giving and clues that I’m about to shoot.

NHL Examples

When watching these goals you’ll notice some common trends. Typically the player will either be shooting in close (less time for the goalie to react) or right off a move (opening up the 5 hole before they tuck it home). The other 5 hole goals I often see is off a scramble, or when the goalie isn’t giving any other options so the player just throws it low and it squeaks through.
