Of all the Saturday games, the Boys National game between the Canadian Hockey Club and the Missouri River Mud Dawgs was the most interesting.  It was a game skated between a team from Bismarck ND and Rhode Island?  Reguardless of where they came from, the CHC team skated the best game on Saturday of any of the teams entered in the Walmart Hockey Cup High School Festival.  They won easily beating the Missouri River Mud Dawgs 3-0 the North Dakota team.  Minnesota fans often see AAA midget teams playing in tourneys at the Super Rink, but the CHC team is different.

First, those who said that the CHC team was from Rhode Island were only partially right about Rhode Island.  The team’s organizer, coach, photographer, and all around “get done” guy is George Maris.  He is from Rhode Island.  The team is based in Rhode Island and play mostly summer hockey.  The CHC team that played Saturday, played with discipline and with some innovation, and put in a good overall performance, the best of the day.

But it was when the CHC team was on the penalty kill, their play was especially noticed.  They played counter attack, a method designed to keep the opposition from setting up their power play in the CHC zone.

The four CHC penalty killers would space themselves across their own blue line and wait for their opponents to attack.  If their opponent tried to skate the puck across the blue, they would counter attack with the nearest defender as soon as the puck carrier hit the red line (left board attack, left board defender counters in the neutral ice; right board attack, the right board defender counter attacks the puck carrier in neutral ice).  The remaining players hold their position waiting for the results on the initial counter attack.  By doing so, they are already in position to cut off the puck carriers passing options.  Most puck carriers try to accelerate at the red line, leaving few passing lanes open when they face a counter attack close in to their body.

It worked for the CHC team and has worked consistently.  The CHC team has given up few power play goals.
