Break Out Basics 2vs1

Back to free drills

Description

D1 steps up over the blue line, pivots backwards and retrieves the puck, skating hard behind the net. F1 and F2 must read D1 and move into a break out position once D1 commits to wheeling with the puck, or cutting back behind the net. -After making the break out pass, F1 and F2 skate around the waiting players in the middle zone and come back in to play 2@1 against D1.

Key points

After passing, D1 should move up towards the blue line to set a tight gap on F1 and F2 trying to force the shot from outside. Goalie plays the shooter as D1 pushes shooter wide and takes away the cross pass to the other forward.
