It was a great night of hockey as the Polar Bears posted a 4-2 win over the Hotshots. While the Hotshots got the first goal, the Polar Bears played a cohesive game that seemed to only get better as we went through the periods. In fact, goals 3 and 4 were scored within a couple minutes of each other, which only helped our confidence.
I had a solid game, despite my asthma acting up a bit. While I was on the ice when the first Hotshots goal was scored, that was the only major lapse I feel I had. I made several stops on some of the best Hotshot players, did a good job keeping the puck in our zone on offense and made some good choices overall in the game. I also got a couple of offensive breakouts that, while not getting goals, were at least shots on net. I also had several shots on net from the blueline.
Next week the Boxers play a civilized 7pm game, and the guys who run the PuckBuddys site are supposed to be in town and may be at the game. It will be great to meet them if they are able to come hang out for a bit.
