X1 & X1 cross the zone and exchange pucks – then pass to the line they are skating toward and get a quick pass back.
X1 & X2 pass to the Coach on their side and perform the breakout pattern (either Center or Wing – in this diagram, X1 is running the C pattern, X2 is running the W pattern).
The side running the center pattern cuts back around the top of the circle and shoots.
The player running the wing pattern exits the zone and passes to their original line and gets a quick pass back for the 2nd shot of the drill.
