Just can't get it going...

You ever have one of those days where you're just off, no matter what you just can't seem to get it going?

Yesterday was one of those days...I wasn't feeling that well because of lack of sleep but that's never been a problem for me. I got on the ice, skated around for a bit and immediately I knew that I wasn't all there...Feeling really dizzy...None of my shots were going anywhere near the net. At one point I manged to steal the puck and deked through 2 defencemen (mostly by luck but I still did it) and was one on one with the goalie, and completely missed the net. That never happened to me before...

Later in the game I got totally burned (I was playing D at that time, we sometimes rotate the positions if not many people show up). I injured my knee on one leg a few years back, and my ankle on the other in a snowboard accident, so my skating speed has taken a huge hit, but I can still keep up. Well this time, I got burned, I skated as hard as I could and didn't come close to catching the guy.

After that, coupled with the rest of the day's futility, I just feel so discouraged.
