Key Elements

Defense jumps up to meet forward, Gap control, Backchecker - head on swivel


Set up one line of forwards and defensemen at opposite ends of rink and on opposite sides. F1 receives pass from F2 and attacks one vs. one against D1. F2 releases F1 to D1 and looks for trailer. If D1 takes F1 out of play F2 picks up loose puck and counters to center ice. Repeat at opposite end.
