I really have to pick up my efforts because this week was pretty bad when it comes to hockey. I really wasn’t sharp on Monday which resulted in a one goal loss. Then tonight we lost 4-2 off a bad deflection off my own player. Obviously, the deflection I can’t control, but through the course of the game I have to make some key stops and I haven’t done that the last couple weeks. Either I was sitting too deep in my net or not playing the angles like I should. It really is tough on my teams when I let in shots I should stop, and I cannot blame them for my mistakes. I just have to play better.
The break from ice hockey and reffing is a very convenient one right now though. Every weekend was busy with reffing, and now I have my weekends open. Every Tuesday and Thursday was busy with ice hockey, and now we enter playoffs where I am going to get a little rest before our games kick in. Soon the session will be over and I will be able to rest an extra day out of the week. When it comes to reffing though, lacrosse will be starting up in the next week or two. I really cannot wait to do that again this year for the next couple months.
My real break will be this summer.
