Forwards split into two groups and line up on opposite hashmarks. Two defensemen are located just outside the neutral zone.
- On the whistle, both corners leave at the same time (one side shown). 01 carries a puck into the neutral zone.
- 01 passes the puck to D1.
- D1 pivots backwards with the puck in transition. (D can perform escape move before making pass)
- 01 supports through mid-ice and receives a return pass, from D1.
- 01 accepts the pass in the neutral zone and quickly moves it to D2.
- 01 opens up in the neutral zone to receive a return pass from D2.
- 01 moves in for shot on net. After shot, 01 stays at net front until point shot is completed.
- (Red) D2 follows the play up ice for a pass from (C). Once having received the pass, D2 brings the puck toward the middle and performs a point shot.
D Can use an escape move, (such as would be performed if a forechecker was applying up-ice pressure), after receiving the first pass from 01.
F’s double transition with both D’s
F’s ensure not to get too far up the ice in neutral zone
