This drill is extremely simple but can be a good use of time for a quick warm up on a half sheet of ice.  To set up, divide players into two lines in the corners and scatter pucks on one side of the ice between the red and blue lines.  P1 and P2 go at the same time.  P1 skates out to the mess of pucks, picks one up and "swoops" back in the zone for a shot on net.  P2 skates out to past the blue line as shown in the diagram, picks up a puck on the far side of the ice and circles back out towards center ice before "swooping" into the zone for a shot.  The timing should be just enough for the goalie to set up between shots.
