I remember once we were a guy short and had to play the entire game that way. It was beyond brutal and our opponent was very worthy to begin with. There was no winning, but it was a moral victory to us that we kept it somewhat respectable.
Yeah, you're pretty much between a rock and a hard place - can't play too hard else you'll just tire yourself out, but can't play too conservative either else you'll leak goals.

We held out pretty well for the first couple of periods but in the 3rd were just gassed. It would have been worse if they didn't pull everyone behind the puck to try and conserve their lead.

This is roller as well, so only 4 people + goalie = more rink to cover.

PS. 9 may have been stretching it on second thought, probably more like 6 or 7. Still not exactly optimal.
