View Full Version : Breakout for Breakout

Who can give me a good breakout out play for NHL Breakout rules. In addition, how about some plays taking the ball out from the offensive corners.

In regards to playing the puck in the corners, as soon as play is stopped for whatever reason, take the ball and skate it to the corner and START PLAY. Unless the referee forces you to stop, you should just play as SOON as possible to catch the other team off guard.
Don't try to use the boards or anything. Clear your def. zone ASAP and utilize quick shooting to score. Stickhandling is almost impossible on some surfaces. Quick passing is key.
As far as breaking out, there are two plays. Either pass it to an open man breaking up the boards, or clear it all the way up the rink and have a man chase.
To provide credentials, my team has been to multiple Breakout The Championships Finals in recent years, including beating Team Sweden, which is the current defending 'world' champions. So whatever we did, worked.

When and Where did you beat Team Sweden? Do you play for V-Form or did you beat them in Europe?

He played for Skinny Puppy in their miracle year. They beat a weaker version of Sweeden in the semi and we beat them in the finals(hollywood). They havent made it very far since.

Oh. I've seen them the last two years and they looked unbeatable. Even when they lost to V-form. They tried to get physical with V-form and got away from what makes them a good team.

Haha, so much for trying to preserve my anonymity. But I'd be willing to argue a few points.
You could be right, it might have been a tamer version of team Sweden, and we haven't made it very far since (tough getting commitments from our newly-marrieds, we all know how that goes). However, we did beat last year's runner up (Marple) in this year's Philly event, who are a pretty good tournament team even on true surfaces. I respect your team's ability as well.
I wouldn't call it a 'miracle year' either. Most teams we've played would agree with Clark's last post; we can turn it up when need be. Bear in mind, you didn't beat us in the championships by very much (2-1 if I remember). We blew through last years Finals round robin without giving up a goal, to be seeded 1st, before we crapped the bed in the second round of the playoffs against some new team. I don't think that's all that bad for a 'miracle' team.
