The one that got away

My goal for Structural Standards this season, after 3 wins last season, is 6 wins and hopefully a playoff birth. When I looked at the schedule, this game was one of the tougher ones I expected. I never expected it to be so tight. It was such a tight game and we had a 3-1 lead that it was the game that we should have had. Instead, the undefeated Rink Rats from last season won 4-3 off a goal in the last 3 minutes of the game.

The good thing is that I really didn’t let any horrible goals in. One shot hit my pad and still went in. I maybe should have had that one. The others though were good shots. It was just upsetting to the team. My goal is to stay positive and keep the team positive and concentrating on the goal. There are going to be a few tough games that they are going to have to weather to get to that goal. At this point though, its not impossible.

From a physical standpoint, I am glad this week is done. I have played a ton of games. My right shoulder is sore from a bruise I got a few weeks ago. My left forearm is really sore this morning, and my ankles are bothering me a bit. Heck, my knees actually feel good for a change. Ah well, its going to be a nice relaxing weekend…..hopefully. Next week I have roller games and ice hockey playoffs for the summer season.
