The last few weeks have been a serious low for me in hockey terms. I can’t remember the last game I won. Even routine saves I am having a problem with.
When I look at some of the more experienced goaltenders where I play at, the long shots aren’t a problem. In fact, teams will go for screens, rebounds, and play action passes to get good opportunities. It seems like I am letting in 1 or 2 of those long shots per game. That does not bode well for my teams that are already short on scoring punch.
Last night, the Bulldogs started cleaning up the roster for next session. Two members are gone after we lost 9-3. The issue is that it had to do with wanting to play and some of the players we had just were not doing that. When you aren’t doing that, you lose games. The Bulldogs are now 2-5 with 3 games to go. Our playoff hopes are done again and the goal I set for myself is also going unachieved, at least for this session.
Last night I thought about what I was going to say here, and it was all negative. I really don’t have many positive things to add right now. Maybe later….
