Just downloaded it now and the first thing I loaded up was Free Skate...which to me is the best way to test glitches. Right away, I could tell the goalies are much more reactive. They follow the puck better and will move with you when you cut across the net, as opposed to just lunging across at the last second. This makes for much easier saves on simple shots. Even when I was able to get ahead of the goalie with dekes or speed, he still had the desperation saves to fall back on, and in this instance, was still able to keep the puck out of the net.
Now, getting to where I think a glitch could possibly come from (granted, I've only played about 5 minutes, but I've gotten this to work twice): the old "skate backward at the goalie then turn and whip it by him" thing. The goalie seems much slower to react to this and leaves a lot of holes. I invite everybody to try it out. I'm doing it by skating straight at the goalie, holding LT at center ice. Then, when I'm about at the hash marks, let go of LT and take your shot as your skater is turning. The timing can be a little tricky to ensure that you spin back toward your forehand instead of doing that stupid spinorama shot that we're all used to. But if done right, the goalie seems to really struggle with it.
EDIT - All right, well, I'm not sure how I feel about skating backward at the goalie. It does seem to increase your chances at scoring (at one point, I scored on 3 consecutive shots doing this move), but in a weird way, I could swear that the goalie was actually learning as he started to play it better. Maybe my skill at doing it wasn't totally consistent, but I do feel like there's something there. If you alter the move a bit...kinda dance around while you're skating backward, it gets the goalie moving more, which can help. I also started skating at him on the left post, then cutting across in front of him right at the crease, and then letting go of LT to turn and shoot short side at the right post (with Kopitar...a lefty. You'd do the opposite with a righty). This made it easier to turn back to my forehand.
