EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NHL 12

I really only have one tip when it comes to defence - controll the slot!

A common mistake is to aggressivly attack the puck handler while leaving the slot open. In reality, it is generally more effective to stay in the slot and play the passing lanes and keep the goal area clear, even if it means allowing the puck handler to take an uncontested shot outside the slot.

So don't go for the big body check along the boards unless you're certain that you will win the puck. Even if you hit the player, he might get a pass through with you out of position. If you poke check instead, even if you don't win the puck, you're still between the opponent and the goal.




If your behind the attacker a sticklift is very useful. Try to come up from behind on the side he's holding his stick before you execute the move. If you're right behind the attacker, you'll risk a penality for high sticking.



Here's an example of bad defence. Not only do I get beaten to the puck - I'm on the wrong side of the attacker (I should allways position myself between the attacker and my own goal) and my teammates goes out on attack, leaving the slot .


Does this work?
