There is no such thing as a "shovel" shot in hockey. This is a Mike Emrick-created expression that extends from when a player "shovels" or dumps the puck into the offensive zone, so Emrick called it a "shovel shot!"

***The shovel shot is simply using one's stick to push the puck in a desired direction. There is no rolling of the wrist to propel the puck. It is very basic and it is indeed a shot.***

What is the best shot in hockey?

a wrist shot, its more accurate than a slap shot EDIT: It depends on the situation. Slap shots are more fun to take and more powerful, but take time and are less accurate. Wrist shots are less powerful but more accurate, but still take a bit of time. Snap shots are quick and accurate, but not quite as powerful. Backhands have almost no advantage and are used out of necessity. I would say the snap shot is the "best shot" because it will allow you to catch the goalie off guard, shoot when being covered, and shoot the puck where you want it to go.

Janet can shovel snow from her driveway in 45 minutes Bill can do the same job in 65 minutes How long would it take Janet and Bill to shovel the driveway if they worked together?

About 26 mins 35 secs (26.6 mins). In 1 minute, Janet will shovel 1/45 of the snow and Bill will shovel 1/65. Thus in 1 minute, working together they will shovel 1/45 + 1/65 = 22/585 of the snow. Thus to shovel all the snow will take: 585/22 minutes = 2613/22 minutes ~= 26 mins 35 secs.
