I started having one before hockey a few weeks ago. I play Tuesday nights from 10:30 p.m to midnight, so I'm usually feeling exhausted before I even leave for the arena. Napping beforehand isn't really an option for me, because every time I've tried, I wasn't able to fall asleep afterwards until about 3 a.m, which isn't good when you have to wake up at 7 a.m for work.
So I started drinking a redbull before the game. I've noticed that it helps (whether it's a placebo effect or not I have no idea) and I can still fall asleep after the game as I usually do (around 2 a.m.).
Sounds like we're in a similar situation. I get tons of ice time and we always have a short bench but I need to find another way to keep my legs moving throughout 3 periods.
