    Im looking for a website that explains or diagrams various offensive/defensive plays for hockey (Such as Positional Breakout, CrissCross breakout, Triangle, Box, etc)...

    May sound kinda stupid as to a reason why, but I just started playing NHL2k2 again for the Dreamcast, and instead of trying for odd-man rushes and breakaways every single time, i'd like to learn how the plays work and actually use them.

    Thanks

    The newer EAsports Hockey games, 2003 and 2004, have this exact thing. They have coach Marc Crawford explaining the plays, how they work, what situations to use them in, etc... He does it for both offense and defense.

    Yeah I just saw this last week for the first time on NHL 2003 for the X Box.

    I found it very interesting and watched over and over again. But it still hasn't helped my game...[​IMG]

    I think it's even cooler that you spelled Canadians like the hockey team [​IMG]

    I can do them, but again it's hard to explain...

    I also think it's kinda sad that a Canadian needs to ask questions about hockey. I always thought we are all born with hockey knowledge.

    I also could explain the plays but it would take a while and it's just not the same without the clipboard.

    Well, I'm not in Western Canada.

    Don't mind me, I don't have anything useful to add to this conversation. [​IMG]
