New York Rangers Quick Transition On Defensive Zone Face Off


  • New York Rangers Defensive Zone Face Off & Breakout   


  • When Rangers win face off, the defense in middle ice picks up puck and makes pass to strong side forward skating to point


  • All 5 players must quickly read weather the face off is won or lost


  • Forwards must quickly be moving out to point
  • D1 picks up puck on won face off

  • D2 & Center must stay with their men and block them out

  • The forwards must cause the defense to back out of zone
In this clip you can see the speed of the NY Rangers cause Ottawa Senators to back out of zone.

On Lost Face Off:

  • Center on Center
  • Defense on Wings & Stay with Your Man
  • Wing in Middle, Stops for Loose Puck or Goes Out to Point.
  • Wing on Out Side Goes Out to Point
