This is an aggressive penalty kill where the goal is to force a turnover before the red line.  K1 needs to force the puck carrier to one side and at the same time force a pass to the boards. Once the pass is made, K2 (or K3) will anticipate that pass and jump the new puck carrier. There is a tendency to back up, but the player needs to go at the player to limit their time and space.  The objective is to force that player to turn the puck over.  The weak side penalty killer (K2 or K3) will have to slide back to the help out  K4. K4 also needs to be ready for a loose puck on the turnover.  K1, after forcing the pass to the boards needs to skate back through the middle of the ice as fast as possible to clutter the middle of the ice.
