Nick's Playing Experience

Video Analysis Example by Nick

Looking at the Chicago Blackhawks in an offensive zone situation even though the hawks are in the midsts of a line change the Hawks do a good job of managing the puck and resetting it down low. As the puck is being reset, number 19 Jonathon Toews puts himself in a great position to protect the puck and maintain control while his team finishes the line change. The 2 on 5 scenario is converted into a scoring chance and ultimately leads to a goal.
