Hosers vs. MN Freeze
I was worried about this game as I knew of at least five players who wouldn’t be able to make the game. Short benches usually mean long nights for me. I reached out to a few players to see if they could sub to give us extra bodies, but nobody could. We had six skaters, giving us only one extra guy. Luckily our opponent only had eight so it wasn’t too bad. It also helped that we were playing the last-place team in the league (we’re hanging in the middle) and were able to manage an 8-3 victory.
The game started off on an unfortunate shot for me. I was set to make the save before one of my players deflected the shot with his skate – past me. I saw 27 shots in the game and could have stopped all three goals that got by me. The first goal was the tip, the second was a breakaway that I was waiting for a move, but they went 5-hole and I was slow to react. The third goal was a broken play in front of the net where if I had stayed as I was I would have made the save, but I lifted my pad up to adjust and try and cover more area down low. In the split second of making that movement, the puck slid under my leg. I had a 2.49 expected goals against for the game, and let in three.
