Woohoo, our first goal and our first win!!
Due to Mother’s Day and the Sharks home game, both teams were short a bunch of players yesterday; we wound up playing 4 on 4 at Fremont.
That means lots and lots and lots of cardio; Fremont is an NHL regulation-sized rink (200′ x 85′). Whew. Our team was mostly good about doing short shifts — we had to call for people to come off of the ice a couple of times when they’d been on for a while and were looking tired, but by the end of the game we were cycling through lines pretty well.
I totally jinxed myself earlier in the weekend by blogging that I needed more practice with 4 on 4s and with D; I wound up playing D this whole game. I was on a line with our captain, Jennie, who gave me good advice and was very gracious when I screwed up positioning a couple of times.
* Fremont: good.
* 4 on 4 at Fremont: zzzzzz.
* Playing D: jury still out. I think good.
* Jennie: good.
