This usually only works on lower difficulties, but if you skate behind the goal and come back up the other side, then cut in front of the goalkeeper at 90 degrees and shoot, you'll more often than not score.
Take into account if your player is left or right handed. If they're right handed then skate behind the goal from the right, if they're left handed then do the same from the left.
If you have penalties turned on, if one of your players gets into a fight, press triangle once to throw down your gloves but don't do anything else and let the opponent knock you out. Once the fight is over you'll get a 2 minute penalty for roughing but the computer player will get a 5 minute penalty for fighting, giving you a 3 minute Powerplay when your guy comes out of the box.
Go to Create Player and enter Wayne Gretzky then go to jersey # and you can get the #99, fill out the stats you want then save. If you want to put your name go to edit player and enter your name, once you do it will say #98, dont worry about that.
