No matter the score, no matter the GAA or SAV%, I’m going to stick with it. I will be stubborn enough to remember that I can only get better.
Not much to say about the game against the Puck n’ Shillelaghs. We got our asses handed to us 8:1 loss. 8:20 Sunday evening game should have been a better outcome, but hey whatever.
1st period: Let 5 Goals in
2nd period: Let 2 Goals in
3rd period: Let 1 Goal in
Half way through the second period as I dug the puck out of my net, the Ref said to me… “Gonna be a long night huh?” – Yes, Yes it was.
Going into the third, I said to myself, F&ck it – Shake it off, be an a-hole and give it all you got. Only let 1 goal in…..maybe there’s something to that thinking? Even did a pathetic pad stack that I didn’t mean to do. Poke checked an attacker that was trying to dangle me (I got the stink eye from him right after) and 2 glove saves. It was a weird mind-set that’s for sure. Almost like realizing that you need to step-up because no one is going to???
As I’ve told my daughters team, the score isn’t just on one player, its a team effort. BUT when you allow 8 goals in you can’t help but feel a little down on your own performance. I’d rather do that than blame someone else anyways.
Out of 557 goalies that have played at CanLAN Winnipeg this year, I rank 508 in GAA and 490 in SAV%, but everyone else below me only has a handful of games. What does that mean? Beats the f&ck out of me.
