Ok. I am not an expert on hockey but my friend knows less than I do. I am on my way to my Bennington Heights storage and she can meet me there. She wants to impress her friends while they watch the game today, and she needs help. I agree to help her with this problem and I go over the most important things to tell her to make her look good.
I am getting rid of old clothes in my storage locker today to make room for other stuff I should have thrown away a long time ago. I will beat her to the place and tell the manager just let her in. I told the manager what kind of car she drives and all of that. I have bags of clothes to go through, and a lot of them I will not even remember ever wearing. There she is. She parks by my car and watches me dump bags of clothes on the ground. “You used to wear this?” She asks holding up a weird old Rush t-shirt. I did not remember but I think I will keep it anyway. Ok. Time to start.
In Bennington Heights storage, I will attempt to explain some things about hockey. First, you must watch the puck. It is hard to follow the puck on a TV set, but you must try hard to do it or you will never understand the game. Next are wingers, defensemen, goalies, and centers. Here is what they do. They do not stay long on the ice, maybe one minute at the most. Another line comes on; a line is two wingers and a center. Sometimes the defensemen, or D-men, change too. Hockey is a grueling sport and a minute on the ice is a lot. The coach will match lines to offset the other team’s way of playing. You want to stop their best lines with your best lines to stop them. Now there are offsides and icings. There are penalties. The hockey stick is not a weapon. No slashing or tripping, high sticking and things like that. There are a lot of penalties. A player who trips another player goes to the sinbin or penalty box for two minutes, fighting is five minutes.
I dump more clothes in my Bennington Heights storage and try to explain some of the plays in hockey. There are give and goes and cycling and power points and two on ones and three on twos. Your line changes must be clean, can not have too many men on the ice. That is a two-minute trip to the sinbin. Five on four if you wish. Yes, Goalies are great skaters. Yes, I am throwing that shirt away. I have had storage a long time. Do you want to learn hockey or not? Ok. I think we covered a lot of stuff. Make sure you watch the puck. The D-men try to pass the puck to the wingers or centers with speed in the neutral zone. Goalies can stop the puck if they can see it. Screen shots are shots where the goalie can not see the puck. The most goals win the game. Easy eh? Not really. I know hockey is a tough sport to follow. Watch the puck.
