I don't understand how he manages to get so much behind shots when he's off-balance or seemingly not using the rest of his body. It's like he just flicks the wrist and it just flies off his blade.

Location: Too deep in crease.
He has got that pull in release that gives him a good 2.5 - 3 feet of angle change that is too quick for goalie to adjust for, then he is so hard and accurate as well. Goalies just has to hope he misses his spot as they ain't getting it otherwise. Too add to the problem he has short sided a few goalies by leaving the puck out and shooting from there with out pulling it in when they start cheating for the pull it into the feet shot. Oh and then he often shoots off stride which really screws with the keepers timing.

Oh and unlike beer leaguers Matthews and most pro's know how to work the stick flex into a shot. His delivery and stick flex characteristics have been very well matched.
