I have been on a few teams that have lost due to not having enough players. Never in my 5 and a half years of playing have I lost due to too many penalties. That is how I lost last night and it stung a little bit let me tell you. The good thing is that I came up with a very solid game. Stopped a few breakaways and made some good saves against a talented team. I can’t argue one bit with my performance. On the flip side, I can argue with the quality of penalies my team took in that forfeit loss.
Its a tough pill to swallow, but I was proud to see us come out with so much jump and cycling the puck like we played with each other before. I hoped we would be a .500 team at least this season. With all the changes we made, adding 5 new guys, it was going to be tough to handle. I am just glad things worked out the way they did. I feel it will make our team stronger in the long run.
