It was tough for me to watch on the sidelines the last few weeks because I always want to be out there playing. But it felt great to get back out there with the boys again this past Saturday when we played the Ducks. And scoring a big power play goal was even better! It proved to be the game-winner in a 2-0 shutout.
The team is playing with a lot of confidence right now and we know what we have to do. This hot streak has vaulted us into the lead of the Pacific Division, giving us the third seed in the conference if the playoffs began today. Everyone on the team is focused on the next game on the schedule and continuing the success.
I’m feeling pretty good. When you have an injury in hockey, it’s never fun. I sat out practically the whole month of February. We have just over 10 games left in the regular season and the playoffs begin on April 11. We got the day off on Sunday and that was good for the team. Being mentally focused and recharged at this time of year is important.
I hear that 105.3 The Fan will have some NCAA hoops going on this Thursday during my normal segment with Elf and Friends, so I’m not sure yet when I will pop on. Talking basketball and the bracket will surely be a topic of conversation. I haven’t filled mine out yet but I’ll give it a look.
This Friday is a big home game for us vs.Chicago. The team will wear special green jerseys for warm-ups that night. Get there early to see some of the great Irish surnames we’re all wearing on the back of the jerseys as part of honoring St. Patrick’s Day! My surname is O’Morrow (I know – real original). Come out and help us beat the Blackhawks!
Thanks – have a good week and Go Stars!
