Manufacturing Passing Lane on 2v1

There are typically four to eight 2v1's per game (depending on the level), and applying some simple concepts & techniques could help converting more of these chances into goals. 

When the puck carrier is on their strong side (right shot on right side) there are less options. The most common options are either 1. shoot or 2. manufacture a passing lane. This configuration is easy for defensemen to take away the pass option because the puck carrier can't carry the puck behind their skates as they can on the off handed side (triple threat position)  

Garland does a great job putting the puck in a "loaded" position to make the defender believe he's going to shoot, which in turn influences the DAL defender to adjust his body and open up the pass lane. 

This is great hockey 🧠 IQ...deliberate deception,  manufacturing opportunities, puppeteering
