In this post we share a document with you on the importance of playing the pressure game to win the puck possession and control game both offensively and defensively.
We include a short video clip from a game between the Anaheim Ducks and the Avalanche to review an offensive pressure tactic (dump-in play) defended against by a passive zone coverage tactic. Anaheim scores as a result of a give and go worked down low by isolating on one defenceman.
We share what the Avalanche should have done to apply pressure, outnumber and win the puck possession control play in the corner.
