I played last night to what came out a better than average game. I came up with a couple excellent saves, but those were wiped out by a couple goals I let in that I should have had. In the end, we won 6-5 in OT so I was happy about that. Still, it was a game that shouldn’t have been as close if I was on top of my game.
This week, I knew with only 2 games that I was going to play, that I had to be sharp. I wanted to go into playoffs on Saturday focused and ready to play. I wanted to go in on a roll winning my games and playing solid. Instead, I have been inconsistent. I come up with some great saves, and then I just can’t stop the puck 5 minutes later.
My focus is what the problem is. On the two shots I should have stopped, I lost my focus on the puck. I have to stay on target so to speak. Anything less is bad for me and my teams.
Now I shift my focus to tonight’s game where a win puts us in 1st place. A win against the team we are tied with right now is going to be a tough feat. The game will not be easy, but it will be ultra competitive. I would not be surprised to see us playing in the finals against this tough Lightning team. For now though, with my full team in front of me, I am aiming for a win tonight.
