Select the "Credits" option at the main menu.
Press L2, R2, L2, R2 at the credits
Hint: Easy goals:
Swerve side to side when on breakaway or alone for
a shot. When the goalie is to far out of position, shoot a wrist
shot to score. This works about 70% of the time.
Set your controls to "Advanced" in the options screen.
Then, when you are about to take a shot, hold L1 + Triangle
and press the Analog-stick Left or Right
to begin deking the puck. Next, hold L1 + Circle
and press the Left Analog-stick in the direction opposite
to which you deked it. Finally, release Circle and the
puck should get past the goalie.
Press Right Analog-stick Up when you are in your opponet's
zone until the highlighted option is "Overload". Then,
go behind the opponent's goalie and pass it back to your defense.
When the puck is being passed, hold L1 + Circle.
When your defense appears on screen, release Circle to
do a one timer slap shot (overload).
Pause game play and select "Choose Sides". Choose the
opposing team, then select "Pull Goalie". Resume game
play long enough for the goalie to get off the ice. Pause game
play again and choose your original team. Then, shoot the puck
at the goal and it will slide in before the goalie can return.
This is very useful if you are down a few goals at the end of
Hint: More PIM:
Put all enforcers out on the ice for the entire game
and have skill level set all the way up (or at least on pro).
You can get a total of 325 PIM by doing this. Ray, Boulton, Stock,
Chara, Domi, and others are recommended.
There are unlimited amount of fights in the game. It
is possible to reach 35 by doing the following: Cut all the enforcers
from the league, then place them all onto only two teams. Cut
players that are not enforcers from the two selected teams. Place
the enforcers on all the lines of both teams. Finally, play a
game with the two teams. To increase the frequency of fights besides
the frequency option, increase hitting power and decrease the
fatigue options. Placing the level of skill to pro or higher makes
it easier to start fights. Players may even fight just by bumping
At the options screen, fill up the fighting meter and the hitting
power. Then, during game play, find a player that fights well.
To start a fight, pick a certain player on the opposite team and
continue to check him. After about three times, a fight will start.
To get in as many fights as possible, put all top enforcers onto
just two teams. Face them off with only enforcers on the ice.
Then, turn fighting and checking all the way up and turn off penalties.
You should have constant fights, especially if your skill level
is at "Hall Of Famer". The best players to use are Rob
Ray, Eric Boulton, Tie domi, Peter Worrell, and Bob Probert.
The easiest way to get into more fights is as follows. First,
set your difficulty level on "All Star" or "Hall
of Famer". Doing this will automatically make fights happen
more often, because the CPU players check you back. Then, set
the "Fighting" slider all the way up, the "Fatigue"
slider all the way down, and the "Hitting Power" down
to slightly less than half way. This helps because when you check
a player in a head-on collision, he will not fly 20 feet away,
and he can stand up to challenge you, and vice versa. Also, trade
some of the best enforcers in the league to your team, such as
Rob Ray and Ed Boulton (both from Boston), and others. Also, create
your own players. Give them high stats, especially in Grit, Aggression,
Endurance, Checking, and Check Bias. This will make them good
fighters, and scorers as well.
Hint: Top twenty enforcers:
1. Rob Ray (Buf): Very good checker, has heart. His 3000+ PIM
is why he is the best. He will fight anyone on the ice and is
the greatest leader for your team.
2. Eric Boulton (Buf): Follows in Ray's footsteps. Have him on
the same line as Ray.
3. P.J. Stock Bos): Fights very often. Does not get called for
penalty that much.
4. Tie Domi (Tor): Dirty player but can scrap well
5. Stu Grimson: May have been forgotten, but is a power house.
6. Bob Probert: 3000+ PIM and can still fight.
7. Zdeno Chara: 6' 9" giant that can deliver punishment..
8. Jody Shelley: Plays dirty but can go toe to toe with everyone
except Ray or Boulton.
9. Matt Barnaby: Not a very good fighter but will always go.
10. K. Oliwa: Big time hitter and can fight well.
11. E. Cairns: Good enforcer for a defenseman.
12. I. Laperriere: Small but powerful.
13. Paul Laus: Also very good hitter for a defenseman.
14. A. Nazarov: Russian enforcer who can deliver.
15 P. Worrell: Big 6' 6'' enforcer who can help a power team.
16. J. Weimer: Has Eric Cairns to back him up cause he is an average
17. D. Brashear: Can go toe to toe with many players.
18. S. Mckenna: 6' 8'' giant who can fight well.
19. J. Odgers: Old but still noticeable.
20.***** bonus player: Create a player named Dan Westphal. Give
him qualities all the way up to have a great enforcer and scorer.
Make him as short as possible and light to make him go more often.
No other created player will go as much as he does. He is great
on lines with Ray and Boulton.
Hint: Best enforcer line:
LW: Matt Barnaby
C: Brad May
RW: Rob Ray
LD: Rhett Warrener
RD: Jay Mckee
