The backhand shot is maybe the most difficult for a goalie to save, and probably the most difficult to master. The hand grip is similar to that used for stickhandling. When possible, the lower hand moves slightly down the shaft for greater power. Puck starts at the heel of the blade and moves toward the toe as you sweep. Spin the puck heel to toe. Transfer body weight from back foot to front foot and the puck is released with a quick snap of the wrists while turning the blade upward. The longer the follow through, the higher the shot.
