Right.







Ideally your d-man gives you a little help with the shooter too. Just enough to steer his path wide of the net, which makes it easier to play shot the whole way (as opposed to having to worry about dekes. It helps him block a pass to more of the offensive zone if he's closer the shooter too. That's ideally, of course. Ideally you stop it when he lets the pass through too. **** happens.
