The offensive blue line hockey drill works on a couple of offensive techniques that defense can use in the offensive zone.  To set up the drill, the forwards split up into each corner with the pucks.  The defense line up just outside the blue line along the boards. F1 starts the drill by passing to D1 at the point and then sprinting to the front of the net.  D1 receives the pass and walks the puck to the middle of the ice for a shot on net.  Defense should focus on moving their feet and controlling the puck with their heads up as they move to the center of the ice.  The shots should be low and use F1 in front of the net for a screen or deflection.  F1 should always be in a position to make it hard for the goalie to see the shot.  Aftet the shot F1 sprints back to the corner to retrieve a puck and carry it up the wall.  D1, after they shoot tranistions back to the boards and receives a drop pass from F1 along the boards.  D1 and F1 overlap as D1 skates deeper into the zone and looks to give a pass back to F1 in the hight slot.
