Hosers vs Raiders
My GoPro battery wasn’t almost dead when I got to the rink this week, so I could record the entire game. We had a short bench with nine skaters in a game that we ended up losing 6-3. I felt good in the first period, stopping 10 of 11 shots. The goal that went in caught me in transitioning from being down to getting back on my feet. The shot was a bit of a knuckle puck too. I continued to feel confident in the second period stopping 10 of 12 shots, one goal being a one-time pass, the other a net drive. It wasn’t till the third period when fatigue was setting in and they piled on three more goals, two of which were snipes.
I would have liked to have played better, but I think of the episode of Goalie by Garmen where he mentioned focusing on what I can control. We’re not going to win many games scoring one goal, and that’s what it looked like we were going to finish the game with until two quick goals late in the game when the outcome was already decided. I’ve been focusing on some gaps in my play, and I’ve seen improvement there. I’m hoping that by they time the playoff roll around I’ll have my confidence to carry the team and steal a game or two. We’ll see.
