I lost my coach's trust

Alright, I'll try to make it short.
I play in a Midget B league, and we haven't lost a game all season. Currently, we play in a tournament, and our next game (tomorrow) is the semi-finals. I am known on my team for my hard shot, the problem is I rarely score goals these days (2 goals in 15 games). Tonight, I hit a new low.

I didn't get a single shot off. At the end of the 2nd period, we were losing 2-0, and I took a bad penalty for cross-checking (deserved). My coach benched me for most of the 3rd period, and we managed to make a great comeback, and won 3-2. I used to be my coach's go-to guy, playing on the wing or at center depending on my team's needs. I have since been demoted to the 3rd line, getting very little power play ice time and used for checking roles.
I know I should sit down and have a little conversation with him. Any advice ?
