Description F1 and F2 attack D1 and D2 2v2. After crossing the offensive blue line, F3, F4, D3, and D4 move into a defensive/breakout position. If defending D recover the puck they move it quickly to their Fs to start to counter the other way.
Key points Forwards ready to break out should adjust their in-zone defensive/break-out positioning as the puck moves from side to side. The coach has the option to blow a quick double whistle to signal a quick re-group or let the players play a straight 2v2. D establishes and maintains a tight gap.
