1:08 into the first period, the swimming pool inside, outside, beside and ALL OVER my crease caused my forward to loose the puck in the slush….something I was not anticipating and the BLADES OF STEEL hot on his heals popped it in the corner of my net, just as I was getting up from the post – Live and learn I guess.
Can’t remember the second goal but I swatted the 3rd one in myself by a bad angle on my blocker – Live and learn some more.
Half way through the first period I though “Wow this game is going by really fast”. Half way through the second, I could not wait for it to be over! I was working so hard I thought I was literally going to puke on the ice. The Third period was a gong show. So tired, I just couldn’t get any speed to make saves that I could have at the beginning on the game.
My D has been blocking a lot of shots for me lately, but they don’t always work. A funny deflection off one of my D’s chest protector plopped the puck on an attacking forwards stick and I couldn’t react fast enough.
I genuinely appreciate the ref’s, time keepers, score keepers, all they do is get questioned on their calls, but that doesn’t stop me from questioning the 29 SA when it felt like 40 going into the third! I’m keeping track myself next time.
A game ending and demoralizing 7:0 loss- What can I say? Back into the +6 GAA I am!
