Umbrella vs. Diamond

The most common penalty kill system to use against the umbrella is a diamond.  It is the job of the three players at the top of the umbrella to recognize that the opponents are using a diamond and get the puck down low to an outlet as soon as possible.  This way you can isolate one player down low and for a short time there is a 2 on 1 advantage.  Quick puck movement is the key.
