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! 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!
