Something interesting happens about halfway through Todd Woodcroft's presentation on the habits and tactics the Winnipeg Jets use to generate offense from zone entires. Andrew Copp, a speedy, average-sized left handed forward kicks a puck out right to a teammate in the wide right-wing lane after skating it over the blue line against the Nashville Predators. He's angled towards the left wide lane, but instead of taking that ice, he head fakes and drives the middle lane toward the net, backing off the Nashville defensemen.
