This website goes over an important aspect of the game of hockey, skating. In this website it reviews the two motions of the skate a push from the edge and then a glide. Not only that but doing movement on ice is near friction less therefore top speeds of over 40 kilometers can be reached with quite ease. In addition it goes over the relationship between force and speed. Similar to running one foot pushes and one foot glides, therefore having a good balance and a straight line of direction. In my opinion, this website has very good and relatable information. It easy to understand, and will be definitely used in my research.
