4th and Goal 2016. Achievement Unlocked. 3 on 3 is still fairly new to the NHL, so I would imagine strategy is still well in development - teams have played tens of minutes at most of 3 on 3 outside of practice. However, from the rest of the world, 3 on 3 is fairly common in lower level games, and some of the strategy there clearly makes it to the NHL game. The goaltending situation sees Dias continue to search for his first win as he’s 0-3 with a.837 SV% and a 5.00 GAA. Colton Phillips-Watts is waiting in the wings with a 1-0 record, a.960 SV%, and a 1.00 GAA. Reigning rookie of the year Logan Terness is 3-1 in the crease so far with a.905 SV% and a 3.48 GAA. 3 on 3 “D” Support is a great small area game to work on game situations in tight quarters. This small area game drill give players a chance to work on quick transitions, give and go passes and set-ups, and swinging to become a passing option.

3 On 3 Hockey
If you are a child of the 1990s, then you probably remember the Mighty Ducks, a trilogy of movies about the eponymous kiddie hockey team. The Mighty Ducks was about much more than a child's hockey team; it was about perseverance, it was about loyalty, but yes, it was about children's hockey. If you were like me, then you probably wanted to join a hockey team after watching the movie. For me, the dream never came true, but for those of us that did not get to play kiddie hockey in real life, there is 3 on 3 Hockey, a Shockwave hockey game.
In 3 on 3 Hockey, you can play as one of two fictional hockey teams: the Blue Freeze or the Red Menace. The teams are equal in performance, their only difference being the color of their jerseys, so just pick the color that you prefer. The objective of this hockey game is to score more goals than your opponents at the end of three periods. By default, periods are three minutes in length, but this can be changed under the setup menu.
The keyboard is the primary control device used in 3 on 3 Hockey. The arrow keys are used to move the selected player (the player with a blue ring under their feet). To select the player on your team that is closest to the puck, press the spacebar. When you are playing defense, the Q key is used to body check opponents and the W key is used to steal the puck. In my opinion, body checking is useless in this sports game, so it is better to try to steal. When in possession of the puck, the Q key is used to shoot and the W key is used to pass to your teammates. Whether you are playing offense or defense, press and hold the E key for a speed boost.
Offense is relatively easy in 3 on 3 Hockey. As long as you can get into position to shoot and stay away from opposing players, you will probably score. Defense, on the other hand, is the hard part in this sports game. The goalkeeper does a decent job of catching the puck, but the AI crowds the goal, making it difficult to pass the puck to teammates as the goalie. In many cases, you may try to pass the puck to a teammate only to have it smacked right into the back of your goal by the opposing team. The only way to get around this is to try passing the puck to the player that is open, but this can be difficult. The only real way around the problem is to try to stay on offense!
You may not be able to sit around a campfire singing Queen's 'We Are the Champions' after beating 3 on 3 Hockey, but you can still relive your childhood dreams. If you had no childhood dreams of being a hockey hero like the Mighty Ducks, then you can still have fun placing this hockey game (I do question your patriotism, however)!

Against the Wall
Yesterday afternoon, the BCHL unveiled its new playoff format in which 16 of 17 teams will now make the post season.
BCHL Communications Director Brent Mutis says the move was made to eliminate the first round bye that was given to the top two seeds in the league last year.
'Let's just make sure everyone's playing in the first round of the playoffs that qualifies for the playoffs, and I think that was the biggest impetus for why we changed from last year's format to this years.'

With 16 teams making it to elimination hockey, Mutis says that you can still expect elite play throughout the season.

'There's too much on the line for these players in terms of them wanting to advance their playing careers. They're going to go out and play hard because they know that scouts from the college level and NHL level are watching them play.'
Mutis also adds that it will keep more teams in the playoff race battling for seeding towards the end of the season.
In the new format, if the playoffs started today, the Cents would be the 7th seed in the Interior division and would face the Trail Smoke Eaters in the first round.
