Help sought with diet and hydration issues

I drink a lot of water on the bench... several liters over the course of a game. I drink a fair bit of coffee away from the rink and I used to drink a lot of booze, although I'm cutting down on it.

The coffee and alcohol would be leading to dehydration. Will lots of water (at game time) fix it?

How else does alcohol reduce performance in sports? What are its exact side effects?

I want to be more than a beer league player, so it's up to me to get it sorted.

Myself and other players complain of having to take a pee break during the game (or after suiting up), but that could easily be nerves, as well.

Also, what's the best diet for hockey? What are the benefits of (a) protein and (b) carbs, and how do I best get them? Thanks in advance.
