To make you faster and more explosive in your skating....you will need to incorporate a good olympic weightlifting routine which involves the clean,powerclean,snatch,cleanand jerk,pushpress,rackclean etc. If you dont know how to do them run a search. Also a good sprinting program will do the trick

plyometric training focuses on developing the fast twitch muscle fibers that provide you with the explosive movement you're desiring. Exercises range from box jumping to side abductor raises (hip flexor development) to dot hopping (to work on quick feet).

having great hip flexors and a strong body will make you skate faster. Plyos are my vote as well.
