Hit the shop area and you can purchase new teams and new formations. The new formations will allow you to arrange your team differently to begin the game. New teams change the appearance of your players, and they possess different stats as well, making a difference in how easily you can control the puck, and how far you can shoot it.
When you’re playing the game itself, you have two things that you can target: either the puck, or rival characters. Don’t leave your goal undefended or it will be easy for the other player to score. As much as you want to keep the puck out of their hands, sometimes it will end up there, so you’ll want to knock characters away from the puck so that they cannot easily make a shot.
If you have a shot, aim very carefully. You’ll most commonly end up holding the puck when your rival tries to shoot a goal and the goalie catches the puck. If possible and if necessary, get all of your other characters out of the way so that you have a clear shot. Bounce the puck off of the wall if you need to, and then fire it for a quick and easy goal.
