    Game 2 with the new guys was much better. Overall we faced a bit stronger team. They had at least one guy who was definitely at the wrong level and between the 2 of us we made things exciting. Game was tight as was last week with the exception that this week our better players were feeling better about going for it. Which was good because they had a one line team and they were going for it too. The team carried a 3-2 lead into the 3rd but then got caught in deep and inevitably the other guys tied it. Boys were a bit deflated so I decided to really go for it, got the puck rushed down the ice and went around the net to walk out and fire up high on my forehand. Goalie was completely down and out diving to get back to my side and somehow got his glove up and robbed the hell out of me. I got the better of him the next shift though, chaos play happened in front and I was chilling at the blue line. Puck squirted out right towards me and there was one of their team trying to get to it, I started yelling "leave it, leave it" and the dude left the puck! So I crushed it. Goalie had no chance this time.
    We ended up winning 4-3 and back in the locker room the vets on the team were really soaking it in. Eventually one of them goes "Finally a ****ing win for this team" and I was stunned. I asked and it was indeed their very first win stretching back to when the team was formed the prior season. So I toasted the win and basked with them.

    Due to eating too much at the All You Can Eat Korean BBQ place, I didn't make it to my 10:30pm game.


    Looks like they won though 3-2.

    That sucks man I was wondering how far you made it down last night. Bummer. Hopefully they get it fixed quick and the re-schedule isn't too obnoxious.

    Obnoxious scheduling is what The Rinks are known for.

    Well the original game was scheduled for 10:35 pm on a Monday night. Can it get worse than that?

    Yea it sucked to do the drive at least no traffic so i was back home in 30mins. Hope they dont try and add another weekday game. Wouldnt mind playing a double header with a 30 min in between to take a small breather.

    We used to have 11:15 starts in Oakland. Those were the worst.

    Then again they kicked us out after one of those because USC was there to play CAL for a 2am start time....

    whoo hoo! My team won our playoff game tonight, 7-1. So now it's on to the semi-finals next week. Our goalie was great, especially in the 2nd period when we for some reason couldn't get the puck out of our zone and I had to take like 5 faceoffs in a row. I am terrible at faceoffs, but I've gotten better this season and actually win about 1 out of 3 now.
    This was against the team who had only 1 fewer point than us, and we finished 4th out of 8 teams, so next round we will be playing "up" for sure. The #1 team is made up of guys who are all huge and tall. Hope we get to play them in the finals next Thursday!

    PS...I did not score any of the goals, but I did wear my Trevor Lewis game-worn Legends Night gloves. Maybe I'll finally get a goal next game.
