What does this mean?

This is taken from an old Hockey Handbook:

"If the player is agile and can pivot well, he can often use the following play with real success. For example, the player heads wide around the defence. Then, as he sees both of the defence pair coming over to stop him, he suddenly stops, pivots around, and cuts behind them. In performing this trick the puck-carrier should start around the defence as quickly as possible, slowing just a little to allow the defence pair to get as much in front of him as possible so that the road to the goal will be clear when he makes his pivot. In setting up this play, it is often a good move for the puck-carrier to head for a spot directly between one defenceman and the boards."

I'm not exactly sure what they're referring to. Could anyone clear this up? Or perhaps put up a link to a YouTube Video with an example?

its similar to a spin move a DE would use in football, got right at someone appear like you are slamming on the breaks and spin away from both d men and go to the net.........

this is rare to work as most d men wont let you slide around then that easy. but maybe ill try it tonight and let you know lol

Like the Spin-o-rama, but I think it's a move Gretzky was known for quite a bit. Basically, skate out wide, get the D to start skating out to you, and then hit the brakes to spin and cut back to the middle and around them. I don't think this move really works at the high levels anymore as defensemen are much better skaters today, but would probably work in 99% of beer leagues
