Arabian Knights 5, Suns 2

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

There wasn’t a game scheduled on July 4, but I also missed the July 11 game since I was returning from Canada that day.  The three weeks rest worked wonders for my back, and I had awesome game.  I scored two goals on two shots, had an assist, and was a +1 for the night.  My first goal came while shorthanded.  My teammate Jason and I were on a 2-on-1 fast break.  He drew the defender with him into the corner and passed the puck to me out in front of the net.  I caught the puck and quickly fired the puck past the goalie to put us up 2-0.

For my second goal of the game, which was the eventual game winner, I was once again the recipient of Jason’s grunt work. While battling with the defenseman for the puck behind the net, Jason spotted me in front of the net and passed the puck in between the defender’s legs. I fired quickly and had my second goal of the game.

Jason and I almost hooked up for a third goal.   On another fast break with Jason to my right, he passed me the puck as I was approaching the net.  With my teammate Ryan trailing the play, instead of shooting for a hat trick, I decided to do a one-touch drop pass to him.  The goalie had no chance as Ryan scored an easy one.
