I was really happy with my goaltending last night. Even though we tied 3-3, I had a solid game. I made very timely saves, even a nice glove save on a puck that was going top corner. A couple of my defensemen said that I was facing my shots real well, and I have been working on that. I am glad to see things were much improved after last game’s lackluster effort on my part.
The only thing that chaps my ass are the goals they scored to tie it up. Both came with under 2 minutes to play with an extra skater. My team was exhausted. One was a screen shot I didn’t see. The other was a pileup in front of the net that I didn’t see either. Bah!
On another note, my knees have been acting up over the last week or so. Today, they are very stiff. Especially the right one. I don’t know if I need a knee brace or something. It could be my butterfly style of goaltending. After 4 years, maybe my knees are giving out on me. I don’t know.
I have a week to rest them.
