Have you ever wondered why some defensive triangles are so much harder to score on than others?
It’s often because of a super-smart, slick tactic of the low defender.
Everybody knows that when you’re in the triangle, you must stay low and try to intercept passes. But, what you may not realize is that to block passes effectively, you must have your stick completely flat on the ice. Having a ‘low’ stick just won’t do.
Check out the two clips below. In the first one, the low defender has her stick low on the ice. In the second clip, the low defender has her stick completely flat on the ice.
This is the difference between getting scored on by the side of the net–or shutting down the opposition. Now you’re ready to dominate in the defensive triangle!
