dont get off the ice a dumb times, like when the puck is in your zone and your team doesnt have possesion and doesnt look like you are going to be able to get it down the ice so you can change
if you and your linemates have been out there for more than 45 seconds and you have the puck in your zone, get it to the redline and dump and change.
you change for your position. ex. you are a RWer, you change with the RWer on the ice and vice versa.
really though, dont get caught on a change. you have to be smart about it, if you are feeling like you are running out of steam, but maybe can go a few more seconds, but have a chance to change, change
you might have idiot teammates and they could call for you to change when you are not in a situation to change, so stay on the ice and change when you have the chance
final tip, when you get to the bench for a change, not everybody pays attention so as you are going to the bench yell something like "ONE, ONE, ONE" or "RW, RW"
^^Beauty answer. ^^
SOmetimes you might not hear a change call. keep an eye on your other line mates. If they go off so do you. And most important, dont change till it is safe. Dump then change.
