nice stats u put up there. to me it shows how CMD have learnt how to take advantage of the double goalie situation :as shown at 7:42 , if willou got BP , polo duty is to : 1°block the first layer goalie so he cannot interact with will trajectory 2° hook the real goalie mallet if possible .
woods get caught off guard with this set up, when he realize its already too late : polo is already parked for a solid block , in a way that there is no way of pushing him off balance with a regular body / forearm check, leading woods to use is steering hand to push him off.
this CMD tactic is pretty clean and , i think there is a more efficient and legit way to defend against it but you have to see it coming( more spreaded defense, take on polo before he gets in the zone and block him ,shit goalie could even leave his spot to harass will + goalie swap because once the set up is on you two guys are useless ). you can be sure that if the double defense is too tight, it will give polo advantage due to his huge size he can hassle the two goalie by himself.
note that woods is defending as a lefty , if he was posted as a righty , heading same way as the goalie, polo would have parked along side to him ,allowing him for a easier mallet hooking on the goalie. you can see a clear exemple of this situation when CMD score their first goal on the same video.
