June 18, 2010, Newsletter Issue #160: Ice Hockey 1 on 2 situation

Tip of the Week

1 ON 2 SITUATION
1 - 2 offense
* If defensemen are parallel try to go between, they get confused about who they are covering.
* Get puck in deep or shoot on the net if challenged.
* Gain the blue line and wait for support.
1 - 2 defense
* Strong side man play 1-1
* Weak side man check to see who next player entering zone will be, if it is a backchecker then come across and play body on the puck carrier, strong side defender support, if an opponent is the next player coming, stay in your lane as it is really a slow developing 2-2.
