So the best I've been able to do on several attempts is 10... still trying to figure out how to get more. I've only played on the Nintendo Online service on the Switch though, so I'm going to try on actual hardware this weekend to see if there's a difference.

 

I want to encourage everyone to share basic Tips & Strategy for Ice Hockey!  :nintendo_mario_freezie:  :nintendo_mario_freezie:  :nintendo_mario_freezie:  8-Bit sports games have always been in their own world. Controls aren't always intuitive, and these games can be hard to figure out at first. I don't mean give away the details of your strategy, but just to help each other get the hang of things. I'm still trying to get the hang of the game myself!

One tip I would share is check out GameFAQs, there is a lot of info on lineups and play strategies. Also the consensus is Poland is the worst team in the game, so play them. :-)

Poland still kicked my butt 9-3 first time I tried it.  I don't know why I picked them as an opponent. 

I'm going to try more this weekend.  I love 8-bit sports games!

Try to take as many shots as you can from the slot. The slot is the areas between the circles in front of the net.

Make sure you take that shot as well ESPECIALLY as soon as you successfully receive a pass from above or below where your player is in the slot. If the opposing goalie is toward the bottom of the crease, hold up while making the shot and down if he is higher in the crease.
