Midget in-house league. Shorthanded. Blocked a shot from the point past the defenseman and into the neutral zone. I scoop up the puck at about center ice for the breakaway.
I deke left, shoot right. Saved. Since I had my momentum going full speed I peel off to my left, while the rebound goes into the right corner. I was beginning my backcheck when I look over my left shoulder to see the defenseman having some trouble corralling the puck.
I decide to turn my backcheck into a shorthanded forcheck. I make a hard left turn and head full speed into the corner where the defenseman is having trouble with the puck. He finally gets it settled, but not before I rock him with an open ice hit. I steal the puck, crash hard to the net, and slam home a nice garbage goal with the rest of the opposing team on top of me.
Probably my best individual effort I've ever given. The kid I laid out was pretty stout too. He was a good friend of mine. I broke his balls all day after the game. It felt good.
