This drill is an extension of the previous drill, Neutral Zone Warm Up.  The drill is set up the same way but now two lines of forwards are placed on the top of the offensive zone face off circle (as shown).  After the defense makes a give & go with the passer along the boards they control the puck and make a pass to the next forward in line.  The forward receives the puck and then attacks that Defense one on one back the other way.  Defense are at a disadvantage and will often get beat to the outside.  The defense should work on opening up and sprinting to the near post to cut off the forwards.  This is meant to simulate a situation where the defense are joining the rush and have to adjust and recover for a counter attack off of a turnover.
