After some reflection on the game last night, I have to make a promise to myself. This promise is something that I need to keep to not only myself, but the teams I play for. That promise is to stay calm.
Last night, I ended up taking a dumb penalty that cost our team a goal. That goal could have been the difference in the game. In a close game, that was the dumbest move I could have made. Even though I felt it was reasonable at the time, it wasn’t.
My New Years Resolution is to keep my cool a little better than I have been out there. The second part of tha tresolution is to keep playing and stay confident about myself and the team I play for. Those things will make me a better goaltender.
