Hey question out to you great folks,

I like playing sports games but not a big hockey fan. Can anyone explain for me, the dummy, the rule for offsides and if possible make it a visual explaination cause i keep on getting whistled for offsides and don't know what's going on. Thanks a lot!

When entering the offensive zone (Designated by the blue line when heading towards the opposing teams net) the puck must cross the line before any of your team does.

i.e. You're skating with the puck into your offensive zone but your teamate is two strides ahead of you, once you cross the blue line carrying the puck and he is in the zone before you, whistle is blown.
