The idea behind the trap is to force the puck to the winger on the boards.  If players are positioned correctly, this player will have to force a play into the triangle.  Forcing the play through this area typically results in a turnover and good scoring chance.

Let the opponents set up behind the net.  The center forces their defense to pick a side, ideally their backhand side.  So if their player is left handed, force them out to his left (your right).  The reason is that if he decides to reverse the flow, then he has to pass across their body and gives your center a better chance to intercept the pass.  Once the pass goes the strong side wing, the center moves into the passing lane to prevent the pass back to the defense.  The weak side winger moves across into the high slot expecting to create a turnover.  The strong side winger moves down and puts pressure on their winger to make a play.
