71 SOG, 42-10 in faceoffs. 1 goal scored

I don't get it. One timers, shots from the slot, slappers from the point and circles, ect... 1 goal in 71 SOG but I give up 3 on 27 shots. I know hockey, I play hockey, I know how to get quality shots, but holy crap. Is anyone else having this issue? Any tips? Sliders or settings? This is ridiculous and it really makes me not want to play the game offline.

No, I don't want to win every game 8-0. I wouldn't mind just having shots even with the opponent but I was getting some good looks and screened shots but the goalie seemed to stop everything. The one goal I scored went off one of the defenseman.

I'm just curious as to what mode/settings you're playing on? (Mode/difficulty/game style/slider adjustments)

You can definitely nerf the hell out of the goalies and still get reasonable final scores. Mine are something like 10 for save reaction time, 25 for cross crease reaction time, and 90 for screen effectiveness, etc. Shooting % remains below 10% as a team. Donít be afraid to mess around. You wonít just up and start scoring 12 goals a game, at least not on all-star or higher.

Note: I do have pass speeds and shot speeds lowered too, so that probably factors as well; but point remains, donít be shy about gimping the goalies.

season (8 min periods) - all star - TNK's sliders but I adjusted them a bit as far as game speed and penalties.

The next game I played I still had 70 sog but I won 5-3. I started pulling the LT when I shot and I was having some better chances. I normally play EASHL and I just started playing offline again a few days ago. It's probably just an adjustment period.

Not sure if this will be helpful or not, but:

I'm using TNK's sliders on all-star/6 minute periods.

I've found a nice medium where I get between 25-35 shots per game, and my goaltenders both have save %'s around .915 and .919.

I upped the human slapshot, one timer and shot accuracy sliders to 60/55/55, and have averaged 3.53 goals per game. I was just finding that with the stock sliders, I was getting plenty of pucks through, but that a lot of them were ending up either in the goalies chest, or missing the net wide.

This has actually allowed me to up the goaltending sliders to 60's across the board (except for the deflection one) for the CPU. You still see some ridiculous saves, but goals that should get through, get through more often.

Re: 71 SOG, 42-10 in faceoffs. 1 goal scored

I usually have this issue when I start playing each year. You just have to lock down the muscle memory of powering up and executing the shot gesture on the RS, and aiming your shots well. Additionally, sometimes it takes that extra pass or extra read on the play to maximize who is going to score the goal.

I went from impossible to score despite dominating possession and shots, to a normal to high-ish goal scoring rate per game. It sounds like your biggest issue is shot execution, and getting your offensive play to a level that properly breaks down the D and the goalie.

I’m just wondering how the heck you are getting 70 shots on TNK’s sliders with 8 minute periods. Lol

Yeah, that's why I was curious about his settings. I've maybe gotten to 40 SOG once with 10 minute periods (though, I don't use TNK's sliders).
