Funny thing about pre-game meals...you can eat everything right and still be slow and ineffective against someone who was pounding bacon and donuts in the locker room before the game.

For the most part, the energy that you're skating on is based off of what you've eaten between the previous 24-72 hours. A pre-game meal is best if it keeps you full without making you feel heavy or bloated. Peter Forsberg used to eat dry oatmeal before a game, which of course would basically force him to increase fluid intake. Personally, I always went for oatmeal and bananas...my thinking was that the oatmeal would help keep me from puking if I had excessive fluid intake, and the bananas because, if I did puke anyway, it would taste the same coming back up as going down.
