Anyways, glad to hear he had a few inspiring moments out there. It only takes one to get that spark going.
They do go side board to side board, and there's no score being kept (I usually do, but this weekend I just didn't feel like keeping up with it with Evan seemingly completely disinterested). It's just drop the puck and keep them playing for 2 minute shifts with a continuous 20-minute game (clock never stops, no matter how long line changes take, buzzer sounds for line changes on even minutes). It's just some days he's really not into being there.
