It was a hard fought, but fun game. At least we got one point with a 3-3 tie after OT. We are now 1-1-1.
We played a lot better last night. In fact , most of the game was played in our offensive zone. The opposing goalie had an incredible game. He took a lot of shots, and I think we were lucky to get three past him.
I did see a fair number of shots as well. The first goal, I would like to take back. A shot from the point, I should have had it. I was screened a bit, but still saw it coming. The second goal came off the third or fourth rebound. The last goal I gave up came late in the third. It was in traffic, and I really had a hard time keeping sight of the puck. It was on the third or fourth rebound, and was a deflection of my blocker when I was trying to do a stick save.
Overall I was pleased with my game. It was a huge improvement over the previous week, and I made some key saves late, including breakways (I had one really sweet save!) that kept us in it.
I have to admit, I went into the game thinking I was not prepared for it. I was not able to get to any stick n pucks or drop ins this week. All I had done was ride my trainer.
