I don't believe that it is "thinking vs not thinking" but more like "committing vs not committing". Stopping for beginners, especially adults, is all about commitment and not being afraid of falling. At open skating you have space avalible for negative thoughts that keep you from really going fo it. During the game that space is taken up by lots of other things that are happening during a game.
You obviously have done more work practicing than you think you have. You just need to build confidence and trust yourself that you have done the work. You have proved to yourself that you can do it so now you just need to trust it and grow your confidence.
