I prefer to work out directly before I play hockey. I have more energy, I feel strong and awake. I don't do cardio, stick to a 7 minute warmup program on the bike and stick to upper body/core stuff, heavy weight/low reps for explosive muscle that recovers quickly. The key to questions like this is try it out and see if it works for you. I would never do cardio or work out my legs before a game but we're all built differently. What's good for one guy may leave you in a heap on the ice crying about your hamstrings during a game. Next thing you know your teammates are dragging you off the ice by your holders and you've been demoted to the human cone league.
