San Jose Burninators vs Phoenix WHOA Smokin’ Aces: 3-2 OT

This morning's game was really cool for me as it was the first time I've
played D against a team that really cycled. Fortunately we knew this
ahead of time as we watched some of WHOA's game last night, so Viv was
able to give me some tips before the game.

Andrea and I played a good D line again — we were on the ice for the
other goals but at least one of them was a great example of cycling. I
know I did absolutely everything that I knew how to do and they just
beat me. That's OK.

On the other hand, I had some good pokes and I kept the offensive to the
corners a few times. I had one good one-timer shot from the point (for
some reason their wings were leaving Andrea and I wide open — we were
always open at point) but it went right to the goalie. Doh!

We were 2-2 at the end of the 3rd, sending us into overtime. Viv had a
fantastic breakaway less than a minute into OT and managed a gorgeous
roofshot. Yay!

And so the Burninators remain undefeated. No game until tomorrow night
at 7pm, so we're hanging out watching the Dolphins game and drinking
free Vegas beer.
