    goes to work

    Hello.

    While I was watching NHL Pittsburgh vs. Buffalo I heard several times such sentences:

    Sidney Crosby goes to work. Evgeni Malkin goes to work with Niel.

    I'm not sure what it means exactly. Can you help me to understand it?
    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Did you mean "Neal"? "Goes to work" means "doing their jobs" -- playing hockey.

    Re: goes to work

    During the play-by-play of the game, it would mean that they were actively engaged in the play. Probably getting to the puck, crossing the blue line, setting up the power play, etc.

    When the offense is set up, the players can pass it back and forth around the zone looking for the right shot.
