Coach whistles and chips puck to middle to start the race. Players start from the goal line. The first player takes the puck and drives to the net. Second player chases first player and gives pressure. The team that scores gets two points. If the back-checker prevents the puck carrier from shooting, his team gets one point. Play up to 8 points. This can be played on both sides at the same time with a second coach/player chipping a puck on the other side (4 teams).
The keypoints are:
- Skating smooth transitions forwards-backwards-forwards
- Speed control around the pylons
- Drive to the net
- Puck protection against the backchecker
- Score under pressure
