We played the London Aces last night on our home ice. We tied them a couple of weeks ago 1-1, and it was a really good game. Last night we lost 3-0. It’s our first loss this season to a team other than Sarnia. The Sarnia team is the provincial champs and they kick everyone’s asses, so it’s not all that farfetched for us to lose to them. Last night’s game though, wasn’t a good one for us. The first goal I probably could have had, but I was partially screened and it was a really good shot. The second goal was stupid. There was a penalty at the other end of the ice, but I wasn’t sure which team got the penalty so I didn’t start for the bench but my coach started yelling for me to come in, so I assumed he was right that it was the other team that got the penalty. It wasn’t, and they scored. That sucked. The last goal was a really good one too.
The Aces are a good team, and they’ve only lost two games this season — the same number of losses as our team going into last night’s game. So I guess that game puts us third in the standings below the Sarnia team (don’t know what their name is) and the Aces. I look forward to playing them again, probably in the playoffs.
All in all, I felt like I played a really good game. I made one really awesome save, the kind that makes you swell up with ecstasy, and I made another 3 or so great stops. So I felt pretty good about the game. I still think I probably could have had the two goals, but they were good shots so I don’t feel too bad about them.
Provincials are at the end of the month. I can’t believe the hockey season is almost over.
