This drill starts with the defense using an explosive start backward and calling for a puck from the coach.  At the same time the Forwards skate to the wall and provide an outlet for the Defense.  The defense should handle the puck as little as possible and mkae a good pass to the forward on the wall.  Forwards should get facing up ice as quickly as possible and move their feet when they receive the puck.  The forwards then go down and take a shot on net.  After the shot the forwards should go to the high slot and then hunt the rebound as the next forward takes a shot.  The defense, after making the pass, skate hard back up to the blue line, transition backwards, and call for another puck.  Once the pass is made a new forward steps out to the other side for an outlet pass from the defense.  The defense will do this four times and then sub out with another defense.If you don't have enough forwards you can stop the drilll every four reps.
