EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NHL 12

Hold R1/RB (and aim with LS) and shoot a wind up shot to send a slap pass by the boards over to the other side as you enter offensive zone.

Here's a video about the overload strategy but the guy who's playing use the slap pass frequently to move the puck over to the other side of the ice. It's a less risky way than trying a cross ice pass.

You can also use the slap pass in your defensive zone. Like I stated before - it's a less risky way of getting the puck over to the other side. But don't do it with an opponent right by you as he will be able to easily steal the puck from you when you wind up the slap pass.

An important part of the game is to be in sync with your team mates. It's like a band. If the members don't play to the same beat it sounds terrible. In NHL 11 - you won't get your passes through.

So what you need to do is watch your team mates and figure out where they're going, when they'll get there and then time your own skating so you get into a position where you can send the puck away to the place your team mate is ending up at.

Let's look at a powerplay. I've set up behind goal and I'm using the Overload strategy. When I start moving over a little to the left winger side you'll se the right winger skating towards the middle of the ice (setting up for an overload of the left side of the ice). When he does this the first time, I fail timing my own move to his. But since my opponent doesn't attack me behind goal, I return to my starting position and so does my RW. When he's in place I trigger his skating pattern again by starting to move over to the left side of the ice. I skate slowly, pausing for a brief second just before I skate in full speed to get to a good position for a pass.



By the way - this is not a created play but a default pattern for the Overload strategy. Here's a nother version of the same pattern:



This type of timing you need to do all over the ice - like when dropping the puck into offensive zone - watch your team mates and send the puck away a split second before he crosses the blue line in full speed. This way you'll have a good chance beating your opponent to the puck - remember to hustle (click LS).



Sometimes you need slow down your skating or even make a little detour to give your team mates time to reach the slot. Try to have the patience to wait out your opponent. Don't go for chance passes through blocked lanes unless you're behind and desperate. Instead, pull back and see if you get another opportunity.
