I love those types of games where you have 7 or 8 skaters and everyone understands what needs to be done. A memorable one is where our team had 8 (guy ejected for fighting like 10 mins through, so then 7) skaters. It was against our rival who had our number for a streak of games. I remember at one point on the ice noticing that it looked like we were playing a system without actually communicating anything out. A little 1-3-1 action was out there and against a team that uses its D to send homerun passes when they are down or are getting controlled, it worked like a charm with the only goals against coming 3-5.
