Finesse play by Montreal's Maurice Richard against the New York Rangers was a case of maneuvering the defense out of position and then exploiting the situation. In drawing A, Richard has the puck in front of the cage, but with a defenseman and the goalie ready and watching. Richard nudges the puck along with his skate and stick in an effort to tempt the defenseman into coming forward to try to get the puck. The defenseman moves, and Richard sends a quick pass through the defender's legs to Dickie Moore at the edge of the crease (B). Ranger Goalie Worsley had also committed himself toward Richard and had gone to the ice when Maurice passed to Moore. By the time Moore gets the puck (C) Worsley is hopelessly out of position, and Moore merely shovels the puck past him into the goal.
