This is the next progression in this simple breakout series. This time the defense will retrieve the puck off the dump and wheel the puck around to the far post, stop, and come out the other way (typically called a "counter"). The forward will skate down to the half wall and transition up the ice so they are available for a breakout pass. The forward will then attack the defense from the other end. After the defender makes the pass then they need to re-take as much ice as possible and make sure they skate out around the tire to take the oncoming forward in a 1 on 1 situation.
