I keep reading about how a team would take a minor to make the game four on four for a while because they were good at it. I want want to know what is the logic did the coach use? You loose your extra man, you've got the same number of people to defend with, when five on four is better in your own end. More men attacking is better as you have more options open for pass and shots. The only logic I can see is that there is more space on the ice, put the advantage goes to the other team as well so it cancels out. If you want the space then you can tell one guy the stand on his own blue line when your team is with the puck to catch dumps and pass it back in quickly. Could someone give me some in sight to things conserning this please?
