A tactical situation analogous to the goal-keeping and scoring problem in hockey is considered. The problem is formulated as a differential game and solved analytically using dynamic programming techniques. The analytic solution is represented by return function maps (in two variables). Other approaches to the problem are indicated with a discussion of their particular advantages and difficulties. Results are quoted for more complex goal-keeping games obtained by a combination of techniques.
