    There are definitely more than a few set plays in NHL94 (at least on the SEGA), and I think it would be great for the new players to understand how to work on them, and how to potentially defend them. The ones that stand out to me are: offensive zone face-off, one-timer (C wins face-off to winger or defender, quick one-timer pass and score) neutral zone face-off, break away (C wins face-off and quick passes ahead for a breakaway, deke score) Any tips from the A/B players out there? Any other set plays you've witnessed? Any advice on how to defend against them? Instructional videos @TomKabs93?

    1. Offensive zone faceoff win to dman --> one-timer pass to winger in the middle 2. Faceoff to winger and accelerate towards the net immediately 3. Offensive zone faceoff win to winger against boards --> crease cut Those are the only ones I ever used.

    I have a lot I'd like to write on this, but as far as set one-timers, here's my instructional vid/graphic on one-timers, including the set play you mentioned: http://nhl94strategy.com/?page_id=133 I try two different ways to defend this. One is to immediately charge with the center to get in the way of the pass/one-timer. The other way I try (and have seen others like @IceStorm70 do this successfully) is to immediately change to goalie to reposition up, cutting off the angle and increasing the chances you make the save. It's a nerve-wracking moment and sometimes you can't do jack about it. The most common move I see people do off a faceoff win to their defensemen is to pass to one of their wingers. You see it all the time. If you can anticipate this pass, switch to a defensemen and crush the winger. At worst, even if your opponent doesn't make the pass, you can still take out the winger, eliminating one option for a few seconds. Depending on who I'm playing, I would give different advice on how to handle winning and losing a faceoff. And on @clockwise's play, I think you will have more success if you pass it softly (backhanded) around the boards vs. hard (#4). The slower puck makes it more likely your winger will get the puck. Also, if you have a speedy guy, you can usually dump it right into the open net if the goalie gets caught chasing.

    RW breaking in at the blue line with the disk hug the wall to the bottom of the faceoff circle hold the puck until the attacker commits so that you pass it just before you get crushed into the boards pass the puck hard around the wall, behind the net to the LW LW retrieves the puck at the opposite wall LW feeds the puck to the center for the one-timer The goalie can get stuck behind the net chasing the puck as it goes behind him. This is a pretty cheap, but somewhat consistent way to get an ENG.

    I think Toronto is great because there's proven local interest for both systems and tons of flights. Chicago also has the flights option and is more central. Nothing wrong with going back to Toronto.
