The Coach starts the Drill by rimming the puck.
The 2 red forwards break the puck out by opening up on the wall and swinging through the middle.
The green forward acts as a high forechecker to put pressure on the red forward on the boards.
The red forward on the boards makes a quick play to the red forward swinging though the middle.
The red forwards tag up and attack 2 vs 1 on the green forward.
The drill is then repeated on the other side with green forwards breaking the puck out.
Different plays can be used to practice breakout patterns.
