Let me explain a bit more; you're trying to get a 2 on1 at the net with your 2Fs vs their 1D...also, you're trying to "isolate" their other D versus your puck carrier and your D that jumps in the play...
If the other team doesn't react quick enough, you can have 2 X 2 on 1 situations in the offensive zone...
I think you're involved in minor hockey, right? If it's still the case, get your teams to play like that...minor hockey coaches don't know how to adapt (or will not due to lack of knowledge) to that system! You'll see them jumping on the bench and yelling "BACK, BACK, BACK" at their players...
thanks. My only involvement is watching the games of friend's kids when I can.
