Ouch!

11/20/03 – Windmeuller Electric vrs Nederveld

Another strong game for myself, but I did make a couple mistakes. One of them resulted in a goal. Still, it was a hard fought 4-2 victory for my team.

1 – A clean cut breakaway opportunity. He deked right and then wristed the shot to the left. It was a good shot as it went between my leg and arm when I performed a kick save and stretched to make the save.

2 – Powerplay goal. I stopped the shot from the point and the rebound kicked out to a wide open forward who flipped the puck over me when I dove across to make the save. The thing I was upset about in this goal was the fact that I didn’t control the rebound.

Rebound control is something I have to work on. I am giving up too many extra chances lately.

In the first period, when I made a kick save off a shot from the point, I felt my right inner thigh muscle give away. It hurt at the time and while I could still do a butterfly, I couldn’t move around like I am used to. It was also a pain to get up using my right leg. Only time will tell how this is going to feel. I don’t think this is a groin muscle, but once again we will see in the morning.
