    Default Scoring drought and a touch of frustration

    I just got back into playing hockey about 6-7 months ago and I have to say that I'm pretty proud of how far I've come in that time, considering I hadn't played in 12 years. I play RW/C in an adult rec league and I'm one of the better players on my team but I haven't scored a goal since our first game (about 6 games ago) and I'm getting frustrated. I get the puck, I get chances but nothings going in. I have a decent shot and I'm fairly accurate, so what gives? Has anyone else experienced this and what helped you get out of the funk? Scoring goals is the best feeling in the world, aside from winning and dammit I want that feeling again.

    Keep shooting. The first one will open the floodgates.

    I'm guessing by your screenname you have a problem with The Fire. That could be affecting your scoring. I suggest a topical cream.

    When you're hot, pucks are bouncing in off your ass. When you're cold, you can't hit an open net. Streaks happen, it'll go in eventually.

    Just don't go streaking on the ice. Can cause serious shrinkage.

    So I should be all set now right? If I put this on and I don't score tonight I'm blaming you.

    absolutely. Also don't forget the powder.

    Blame mitchrock threads used to be rampant here. I will own up to the advice if you don't score in hockey. As far as with women, I'm still working on FishMonger and am not ready for a new project.

    Try taping your stick differently, or use another one all together.

    Its usually what I do, swap my normal stick for the backup, and use different color tape, add or omit wax etc.

    Probably does nothing, but whatever, its a mental victory.
