I've always kept a close eye on what I eat before a game. Avoid crappy food aka fast food. Stick with carbs, pasta has always been my favorite pre-game meal. Acts like diesel, takes a bit to get going but lasts much longer than other food. It's like a energy drink vs gatorade. Anything with electrolytes is the way to go. BUT, one thing most people don't do correctly is how long they eat before a game. In order for body to take in the food energy it needs time, I know plenty of guys who eat half an hour before heading to the rink, it's simply not enough time. Two to four hours before a game is ideal. As has been mentioned, 3 hours is about right.
