Lost our second game this weekend, 5-2. Had an assist when their defenseman turned the puck over, I snagged it and pulled backhand to forehand to beat the goalie but he made the save, teammate knocked the rebound in. Still ended up -1 or -2, can't recall. Only had 2-3 shots on goal I think. I played pretty badly.

Also had a nasty collision in the game. One of our forwards was racing one of their defensemen for the puck. D-man cuts in front and starts to go down a few feet from the boards, our guy doesn't let up, D-man ends up going head-first to the boards. Was down for several minutes and from what I can tell got a bad concussion. Our guy got tossed and will serve a mandatory suspension. Not thrilled with the call but you have to be careful.

My takeaway is to never go to the board straight on but always at an angle. I'm not getting paid to play and won't take the risk.
