Caffeine before games?

never gave it a thought until this past week.
I remembered when I'd do my runs for reserves that I'd try to slam a can of Red Bull before I ran, and that did nothing but have my heart jackhammering halfway through the run. So for the longest time I never touched caffeine before a game....until this past week. Just finished watching Pens vs Flyers and I was struggling to stay awake since I was up late the night before. I go through the fridge and find a 2xstrength Rockstar. I then realize I have a game that night at 8 (this was probably about 4ish). Instead of having my heart go nuts halfway through the game, I felt like I had energy that I usually didn't have.
Could it be a mental thing? It's very possible. I may even lean that it is more mental since I drank it several hours before hand. I'm gonna try it again just to make sure that my "Rockstar Theory" is the real deal.
