I now know what Jussi Jokinen feels like...

Last night in my men's team played its 3rd playoff game in 4 nights.(After a loss last weekend.)

After two big wins (If we lose we are out.) we play last night and get down 2-0 over the first half of the game. We aggressively pushed for the tie, and end up 2-2 after regulation. A 5 minute overtime ensued which produced nothing.

Off to the shootout. We put our three biggest guns out there. First guy loses the handle. Their guy misses. Our next guy dekes the shorts out of their very talented goalie and puts us up 1-0. After another strong save by our guy, our last shooter gets stoned with a big pad on the deke.

Their guy comes in slow and ends up scoring. Tied 1-1.

Yours truly says to our other captain, I want to go fourth. So I pick up the puck and deliberately skate down the ice...not too fast because three periods of snow is not ideal for a shootout.

Deke the forehand move to the backhand and wait for the goalie to open up the legs and I slide it through. Our goalie stones their last shooter for the victory.

So....I start my shootout career 1-0 with the GWG.
