Spring/Summer 2008 Hockey Season

The playoffs start tomorrow.  We finished the regular season in 3rd place with a 15-9 record, trailing the first and second place teams by just one point in the standings.  It appears that our forfeit loss to the last place team three weeks ago has cost us a first place finish.  I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised by that, since this entire season has already been totally weird for me.  I started the season with a 12-game goal-scoring drought even though I felt that my skating was improving.  I wasn’t too worried though, since I knew that all it would take was some lucky bounce, and I would turn things around.  Sure enough, once I got that first goal of the season, I began to resemble a hockey player once again.  I finished the season with 7 goals, where 5 of them came from my last three games played.  Hopefully, this hot streak will continue through the playoffs.
