Hey everyone even though this bored is kinda to almost completely dead I just wanted to say a few things I just picked this game up a couple days ago and I'm loving it I don't get how some ppl say that this game sucks, I've been playing the Be a Pro mode (both skater and goalie) mostly and I have to say one of if not the funnest hockey games that I've ever played


the only question that I would have is should I use the right stick when playing goalie or should I just get in front of the puck?

Goalie is easy for me, usually I just move left or right to where they are and the goalie usually automatically saves it but if the goal is crowded then I do use the stick once in awhile to tap the puck out of the zone.

thanks for the advice that's what I do now just didn't know if using the right stick helped or not I just wish that the online would have more ppl playing this game Idk if it's cuz they moved onto 10 or they just don't play it anymore period, I love playing goalie I just played online and beat 2 human on the same team and I have a computer controlled team I for one think I'm doing pretty good since I've only had this game for like 3 days now lol.

playing goal is about deciding whether or not to use the left or right direction with the stick, basically. Also, the further you come out, the better really. I see alot of AI goalies so far just hanging out in the blue ice, whilst I am 3 feet out of that yet when someone gets a long shot or is all alone. sure i move back as they do, but to start with? make yourself big.

but yeah, if they shoot right, you flick right. that's basically it.
