Players may not double shift
(the home team then can match up their lines against the visitors CM prior to the game. There is no manual line changes allowed)
In Overtime you don't need a 4th OFF line and you may use just two DEF lines. Because the period is only eight cards in length (Regular season only)
Lineup - Be sure to have 18 players selected. 12 Forwards, 6 Defensemen.
Lines - Be sure not to double shift any players.
Overtime Lines - OT is 4 on 4. Create 3 OT lines. Do NOT Leave the Center position OPEN. (you may put a WING or Center here)
Centers may play on the wing in Overtime.
Power play - P** can play on the Point. You must have at least one defenseman on the power play (can't have two P** on the point) - P* are not allowed to play the point.
Short handed - Centers may play Wing while shorthanded.
Goalies - Make sure your % of games to start adds up to 100 for your combination of goalies. Fill in your Goalie Schedule for the block.
Line Orders - Make sure to check your 3rd period and OT TABS. (the game defaults to 3 lines, change this to 4 lines on your CM) Set your 3rd period Lines to ALL four OFF lines and three DEF pairs. And set your OT with your three OT OFF lines and 2 DEF lines.
Do not play any games now. This is just the Manager Update period. Once the Commish has received all of the CMs he will send out another league backup file indicated it is time to play the block.
Be sure to send in your CM before the due date listed.
