Two-Corner Power Play Drill Description

To begin, set up two nets low on the goal line, with two teams 4 on 2 in both halves of the end zone. The coach initiates 4 on 2 play by passing to one attacking team. Upon recovering the puck, the defenders or goalie can move the puck to the other side of the ice to their players, to continue the 4 on 2 play.
