day 2261 – pinching defense

defense duties today was fun because my defense partner mentioned i have the green light to pinch at my own risk. i did just that and took advantage especially when the opposing weaker forward was on the ice. i didn’t make any defensive mistakes and even i came so close to potting one in the net. we still won 3-2 to continue the squirtle win streak. i wish i could say the same for nachos

day 1633 – planet ice me


friday night menu consisted of hockey and wings. started my first ever game as a defense which is something i’ll have to do more of. it seemed a little daunting at first but better after nervousness dissipated. the game at the blueline was pretty exhilarating because the game in action is seen in another light. it’s good opportunity to improve my two way game and prepare myself for what’s to come in the spring. made a few good outlets passes, back checks and just taking the stick. i realize i’m quite the gambler at the back end, perhaps i’m still figuring out positioning and angles. i’ll get a chance to work on those kinks through the course of the spring season
