Coaches dump a puck towards the opposite boards. Two players are ready for a race. As soon as the puck hits the boards they can go.
On the left the offense player has a couple meters advantage over the defender. The defender tries to steer the offense player smartly away from the net if possible or into the boards and tries to steel the puck.
On the right both players start at the same point.
Whoever wins the puck tries to score.
The key points are:
- skate hard but smart
- use body and stick at the boards
- put pressure on the player ahead of you
