Yes, I agree, play to win is an ambiguous definition. What I mean is rather trying to win at all cost and taking losing a game too seriously.

There was this guy who played D on the opposing team and he once threw his stick trying to prevent a breakout. He later commented on this "play" that "he had no other options".
I haven't seen players deliberately throwing sticks to prevent a goal since I was like 6 y.o. And that is a C league. Two teams. Summertime. [And the livin's easy].
