Last night my ice hockey team had only 7 guys show up and that was the game in a nutshell. At the end of the first period it was 2-1. At the end of the second period, it was 4-1. The final was 7-1 and I was dead tired. One of my friends on the other team said I got “peppered” and that was an understatement.
Crawling into bed last night I was aching. I was diving all over the place in that game last night and I knew I would pay for it later. Today, I am much better, but I still have to think about what I did wrong in that game last night.
First off, my angles were off. There were a few goals I came out to play the puck and I was just off on my angles in which they were able to put the puck in the open net. A few shots went off me and still went into the net. I have been snakebit recently, and it just goes to show you just how bad it has been.
I need to play my angles better on Friday, and anticipate the shot a lot better than I am now. A few things to work on and hopefully break out of this slump on Friday.
