Neutral Zone
COACHES: In Today’s game, quick transition is the name of the game. Why? It doesn’t allow the other team time to get into their defensive structure. TBL turns the puck over twice in the neutral zone…and WSH waists no time pushing the puck up ice on these 2 goals. Great job!!

KIDS: Watch Bryan Little (18) for WPG on this clip. He does an unreal job as F1. Stick down, hounding the puck, back hard thru the middle. He takes away passing lanes and limits their options to move the puck up ice. Such a great job, especially while up in the 3rd!!

COACHES: Boston’s NZ…especially in the 3rd…was on fire last night! Check out these clips, specifically: -The big time effort from F1 -Great gap above TOR middle F -Great gaps from BOS D All 3 lead to A LOT of dumped pucks & very little room to make plays. Great job!!

COACHES: Here is a great clip to show your D how to hinge in NZ. Why hinge? Watch MTL slide their F1 & F2 over in their 1-2-2 NZ, trying to cut the ice in half. The hinge allows WPG to come back out weakside where there’s space w/out passing thru the clogged middle. Great...

COACHES: Here are 3 examples of “Going North” fast. By moving the puck up ice quickly, especially after turnovers, you can catch an opponent before they get set in their defensive systems and drive the pace of play. Great job here in transition!

COACHES: This is a great clip to show when teaching your players about F1. When the puck goes D to D, Couturier quickly curves his skates and angles back w/ his stick on the ice attempting to take away middle/cross ice option. He pressures D & helps force a turnover…great job!

I see this a ton in youth hockey. Bad D gaps (like BUF) = easy offense for opponents. Coaches: encourage D to skate & get up ice in practice in practice. It’s not just for offense, but to have a good gap defensively too.

A big reason why PIT shutout BUF was the awesome gaps from their D…frustrating BUF in the neutral zone and causing them to turn A LOT of pucks over. They had their forwards tracking back, allowing D to play aggressively and be tight above BUF’s forwards. Great job!

COACHES: This is how you transition from Defense to Offense! How much are you teaching transition in your practices? Are you pushing the pace? Are you involving all players, including the D, in the offense? That is the game of hockey today…and this goal displays it all!
