Playoff time.

So lots of league have/are about to start playoffs, so I guess post how your team does.

My team has our first game tonight, and I'm starting for us.

We won our first game 6-2, I came 5 minutes and a blown offside call away from a shutout.

I went 9-1 in the season. The game I lost we had 4 guys the whole time. And we only lost 5-3.


Day of the playoffs, I get a text saying we have 2 guys for the game and we forfeit. Good-bye playoffs.

My playoffs start Wednesday. We are the seeded #5 playing seed #4. Should be an intense game.

Bowed out in the first round of our B-level rec league playoffs.

Facing the top team in the league, only had 7 guys show up for the game.....then one of my D-men took a puck to the face early in the first period. Bled on the ice for about 10 seconds before leaving the game and heading off to the hospital for stitches.

Somehow, despite having just one sub left on the bench against their three full lines, we managed to take to a 3-2 lead into the 3rd period, despite being outshot 34-13.

Final score: 10-3...........Outshot 67-17 for the game (a personal record shots against & saves).

Team just had no arms, legs, or anything else left to give me, and the final 8 minutes were just a firing drill from point blank range. Still, I made some ridiculous saves and the other team was pretty classy about it after the game was in hand (they kept playing, but they were clean and weren't pressing for goals in the final 15 seconds).

We lost that game in OT. Get a powerplay in OT and ring one of the post and their best player carries it back up the ice and scores shorthanded. What a killer.

Our playoffs start this coming Wednesday...Being the 7th placed team we play the 3rd, 4th and 5th place teams I believe....Regardless, those are teams we had a some really good games with this year. Also teams against which I'm able to put up decent #'s. I'm looking forward to it...we lost in the finals last year...would love to put up a good fight and at least lock up a semi-final spot....

It's a fun time of the year though....this much is for sure!

Was it your first season? My first season I remember we went 0-12 haha. Our first game we lost 11-0, it was great. I hardly remember it now, but I remember I was sad then, but used it as motivation to get better.

My team's still a month away from the playoffs... good thing too we need to make up ground. winless in the first 3games with a much weaker ensemble than last year.. we're now 5-3-2 and unbeaten in 6games.. and leading the league in scoring (59goals) unfortunately, we also second in the league in goals against47)... I just tell myself that we're playing like the oilers that way I feel better

we lost 7-6 in OT last night in our first game. It was a definite heart breaker considering we controlled the play most of the game. Had a 3-0 lead after the first, 3-3 headed to the 3rd(ran into penalty trouble in the 2nd) and then we were down 5-4 with 10mins to go. We got a PP and capitalized on a nice cross crease pass. With like 5mins to go, I got a pass which gave us a 2 on 1...as soon as I got the pass I was looking to dish it to the other winger who had a bit more speed than I did...dman played it nearly perfectly and stayed with the winger driving the net, I snapped a good hard snap shot that beat the goalie right under the cross bar...I was pumped...team was pumped...things were looking up.

Then w/2mins to go, one of our dmen got caught pinching a bit (god I hate it when they do that and don't have to...lol) which gave the other team a 2 on 1....a quick pass and our dman that was back was turning and skating to catch the guy with the puck who was cutting to the net hard...our dman gave him a little tap on the side of the pants. And in this case, it was legitimately a little tap lol....anyways, he got called for the slash - their guy got an extremely quality scoring chance only to get robbed.

So we're killing the penalty, and doing a great job of it...until there was like 3.2 seconds left...puck popped back to the high slot...player shoots it, hits like 3 sets of skates heading towards the net, bounces around and literally hopped over our goalies pad, who had no idea where it was thanks to all the traffic.

Their GWG in OT was similar in the sense that it was 4 on 4 hockey, everyone collapsed to the front of the net and the puck popped back to the high guy who was relatively open...he took one of the worst shots I've ever seen. Yet somehow it eluded all sticks, gloves, shins...and beat our tender...

But...thankfully, if we can beat the #2 and #1 seeds in our next 2 games we'll should have a shot of playing in the semi-finals...with a little luck....
