EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NHL 12

Video guide requested by Will.



I forgot perhaps the easiest and most obvious trick to get pass D's. By quickly tapping the R1 you will send the puck ahead of you and thus skate faster. Use this when you're slightly ahead and want to keep the distance or when your skating along the half boards and see a D coming at you (if you don't get past and the D body checks you the ref might call an interferance) .

Some general tips:

Don't do the same move everytime, 'cause your opponent will learn. Mix up your approach and be erratic. Dump the puck from time to time. Make sudden stops and change direction to create insecurity, giving you more room. Use loose puck dekes to make aggressive defenders pay (you need an open area behind the D to be able to pick up the puck again). If your opponent poke checks a lot, stick deke and chop the puck to make it harder for him.

Does this work?

    Again, great guide! You are seriously good at this game, and these tips should be really useful, so thanks for your effort!

    I'm going to fire up NHL 09 on my PS3 now and try out some of this stuff, hopefully it will improve my game.

    Once again, great job and thanks ;)
