-Capitalizing on all odd-man rush scoring chances and shutting down the opposition's opportunities

-Executing lock-down defensive play in all zones to eliminate good scoring chances and shots on goal

-More than 25 power play systems for both the one-man and two-man advantage to keep the defense off balance and produce more scoring chances

-Penalty kill strategies that will stymie any attack and routinely clear the zone

-Controlling the puck and breaking up the opposition's play with aggressive forechecking and backchecking strategies

-Controlling the game with top-notch game management tips on line pairings and changes, key momentum changers, and many more in-game adjustments to keep your opponents on their heels throughout the game
