This is a NHL game and it has very few and really easy achievements. This will be an easy 1000 <5 hours and you should fly right through it. There are no glitched achievements but there is one somewhat hard achievement, it is "Score on penalty shot (All-Star)". This achievement will give you some trouble so I will list an easy way to get it.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Four of the five achievements are pretty self explanitory so if you need help, refer to the achievement guide, but one achievement "Score on penalty shot (All-Star)" does need some explaining. I will make a list of what to do.

Step 1: Set all CPU sliders to 0 and make all of your sliders to max. Make the time set to max and make it real life time. Make the penalty time set at the max of 2 minutes. Now you are ready to start the game.

Step 2: Pick a good team, and than make your opponant Denmark, because Denmark has horrible stats.

Step 3: Start the game and right away get 2 of your players penalized. This will make Denmark more aggressive and come closer to your goal allowing you to fly past them. If it is 3v4 wait till there player is out of the box, it has to be 3v5. If time is running low on 1 of you guys, get another guy penalized and the time will become longer (guy leaves box, new guy in, and other guys time is new time). The best way to penalize yourself is to punch the other teams goalie.

Step 4: Let Denmark get near your goal and then steal the puck and rush down the ice to the other side of the ice. Start to slow down quickly than hit repeatedly, the other team should come from behind and push you over allowing you to get a penalty shot. Keep trying this if you fail and you will get it to work.

Step 5: This part is crucial. When you get into the penalty shot mode, skate down the right side of the ice and when you get near the goalie, kind of get near him then shoot the puck right away, if done correctly the puck will go to the opposite side of the net scoring a goal and getting you this hard, but easy achievement.

This game should take no more than 30 minutes. If you are having trouble with any achievement, make sure you are on the needed difficulty and make sure your sliders are at max and the other teams are at 0. If you are having trouble with the 1 minute goal, make it real time. The achievements in this game are simple and you will get most of them while just playing for real. Most goals are breakaways so don't worry about that one. Follow my steps for "Score on penalty shot (All-Star)" and you will have this game 1000 in no time.

Also, if you are having trouble with "Score on penalty shot (All-Star)" try holding instead of tapping it, they both work but sometimes holding works better than tapping and vice versa.

Score on a breakaway (Amateur)50
Score a goal on a breakaway on Amateur difficulty or higher.    (2) 

Score a goal on a breakaway. Pretty self explanatory, A breakaway is when when one of your players goes one on one with the opposite teams goalie (or net depending on whether or not you pull the goalie.) You can does this normally or with a second controller. If doing it with a secnod controller then be a good team like the all-stars and chose a bad team for your friend, or the other controller, Start the game. Get the puck go behind your own net, then sprint towards the other net. When at half take the other controller and Pause then select "Team Strategy" then "Pull Goalie." The shoot at the empty net when you're close enough.

*Difficulty must be at least on Amateur*

Score goal with defenseman (Pro)150
Score a goal with a defenseman on Pro difficulty or higher.    (1) 

A defensemen is one who depends. They will usually play back and you will usually have two denfesmen on your team. Simply take one of your defensemen and score a goal. You may use the technique in "Score On a Breakaway" or do it normally.

*Difficulty must be on at least Pro*

Score goal when 2 men down (Pro)200
Score a goal when 2 men down on Pro difficulty or higher.    (2) 

Being two men down is when the team has 2 more people then you. Simply get two of your guys in the box(penalty) by having them foul one of the other team's players. To help turn the penalty sliders in the menu to the max. The skate around and check people and slide around and hack. This should get you two guys in the box quickly. Then you need to score a goal while both the guys are in the box. You can do it legit or with another controller and pull the goalie.

*Difficulty must be on at least Pro*

Score on penalty shot (All-Star)250
Score a penalty shot on All-Star difficulty or higher.    (30) 

This is a tough one. First go to your menus and turn the penatly sliders all the to the left and penatly shot sliders to the right. *You must be fouled while taking a shot to get a penalty shot* Wind up for the shot and let a player hit you. It will not work everytime but after a few tries it shouldn't be a problem. If done legit it might be hard to score the penalty shot itself so I suggest to do it with another controler and let the CPU hit you. Then once you're taking the shot have the other controller click  and take the goalie to a side. Then shoot at the other side.

*Difficulty must be on at least All-Star*

Score in Under 1:00 (All-Star)350
Score a goal in the first minute of play on All-Star difficulty or higher.    (2) 

You need to score within the first minute of the game. Set up a game with another controller then win the face-off and, skate towards their goalie, pull it using the other controller and score. For a detailed description of the settings see "Score on a Breakaway".

*If done correctly you can get 3 achievements at once: Score in Under a Minute, Score on a Breakaway and Score with a defensemen. They can be done within your first 5 minutes of playing the game.*
