I've been working a lot on stick handling and doing so with speed to beat guys 1 v 1 and trying to anticipate their stick checks and body movement to better utilize quick puck movement and changing speeds. Each ice time I get its been getting better and better and ill show flashes or stretches of having actual hands. Today at pickup (with most of the same group for this pickup), I put it all together and was stick handling through defenders at will or bursting with speed to go backhand and build the wall. Changing it up each rush, I kept getting chance after chance after chance. Didn't finish them all or I tried to force too many passes to be unselfish but it still felt really good to see progression on something I was working on.

It was very much one of those zones where you stop thinking and you get surprised with what your instincts start deciding to do.
