Oops, my bad then. I always thought stretching was good for sore muscles because it brought blood to the affected area (although I never understood how stretching promotes blood flow).

Regardless, if you are playing at a low level (I have no idea what level you are playing at) I don't think it should really bother your game. The last time I hurt my thighs from playing, I had a really hard time walking but I could skate just fine. Biggest problems were flinging out my leg behind me when striding and I trying to close my legs too quickly when an opposing player was trying to slip a puck through them.

Out of curiosity, what do you find hurts more right now: Going up a hill or going down a hill?
