There’s one play I recommend you run if you want to get a quick and easy goal to put the pressure back on your opponent. I was able to get two goals out of Nicklas Backstrom with this play. Why it was Backstrom charging up the ice and not Ovechkin is something I won’t understand.
Backstrom streaked down the ice and Ovechkin set him up with a long pass for a goal. We tried the same play again and it worked.
Another key for passing is to get the whole team involved. Get your defense involved int he play, let them carry the puck up the ice when they have the chance and more importantly, cover for them. Nothing is worse than all five players getting caught trying to pass the blue line at once. Find ways to get the whole team involved.
Another method for the play we mentioned earlier: patience is key. You also have to be patient on defense. Don’t be afraid to take what you have and wait. There’s nothing worse than picking your defensive players and not having your forwards on your side when you have the puck in the offensive zone.
That’s two tips and here’s one more.
