EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NHL 12

This little rule I've set up for myself have worked wonders for me:

Coming into offensive zone along the half boards you're easy pray for opposing D's. Still, this might be the only way into the zone from time to time. If you can't make a pass or deke your way out of the situation, send a wrister towards the goalies far side post.

Most likely the puck will hit and rebound off the golies pads. So instead of causing a turnover, you've created a scoring chance.

Even if you don't get a rebound out of it, you might force the goalie to cover up the puck and get a faceoff. If you miss the goal all together, more often then not, one of your wingers will get to the puck in the corner. And if you are really lucky, you might send your opponent to the penalty box for interference, if he hits you after you've wristed the puck away.

    I totally do this same thing! It does run up your shots on goal a bit but if you can make this work to get scoring chances, frozen pucks, or simply keep yourself alive in the offensive zone - time on attack will be greatly in your favor.

    Thats all fine and good-BUT how the hell do you avoid turnovers in the neutral and defensive zone when you are being all out pressured?!!

     

  4. Lazy Said,

    If they're putting on a lot of pressure they will be overloading the part of the ice where your puck holder is. It's tough to play against an aggressive team but on the other hand - you will get alot of 2 on 1's and breakaways if you can get a puck through with your opponent deep in your defensive zone. Try getting the puck over to the other side of the ice, but avoid cross ice passes. You could try a drop pass over to your weakside winger if you get the time. If you don't, try passing round your opponent. What I mean is that you should pass the puck backwards, then over to the other side, and the up the ice (like the letter U). If there's an opponent between your puckholder and the receiver when you're going to send the puck upwards towards offensive zone - use the boards and a slap pass to get by him.

    Also this post with two break out plays might be of some help: http://eanhl.blogspot.com/2009/10/break-out-plays.html
