Hey guys, I'm on my last few achievements for this game and I'm having problems getting some of the power up achievements. I don't have problems getting the powerups...it's scoring while I have them that is the problem. I have 4 controllers so I put three on the other team so there is no interference, but I can't seem to get the goalie away from the net to score!! Anyone have any tips? I'm pretty dumb when it comes to sports games :confused: Thanks in advance! :Bounce:

A few tips: 1) Try one-timers, where you pass from the wing to a player in the center and immediately shoot; 2) Knock down the goalkeeper and pass out to the player with the needed power-up; 3) Keep checking the other team until you have a power-up and an opposing mini-goalie at the same time; 4) As you get a better feel for the scoring, you'll find that shooting from angles is generally more successful and sets up more opportunities for rebound goals; 5) Finally, I think it helps to keep a couple of the opposing players CPU controlled. This will force you to check more to regain the puck and will increase the number of chances you have to get a power-up and mini-goalie at the same time. Hope this helps.

I'd say this is the best piecie of advice, 90% of my powerup goals came from some sort of angle or rebound.
