Puck Luck

It was a boring rainy day outside of the Rogers Arena on March 31st, but on the inside, it was anything else. As over 20 thousand fans were overwhelmed with excitement for my team playing in game seven of the finals for the 2031 Stanley Cup World Championship. However sadly my coach had chosen my goalie partner Braden Holtby to play in the game over me, but for some reason, I was still very nervous about our game against the Russian Rockets. Me and the rest of my team did team warm up playing sewer ball in the hallways then did a quick run and stretched. Next, I did my personal warm up doing stretches and hand-eye.I then went back to our dressing room to start getting ready for this big game, once we were ready our coach came in

But Russian player Ron Duke took this too far as he punched Connor Boeser in the face giving him a five-minute penalty. With only ten minutes left in this game, my team had to capitalize on this opportunity and capitalize they did. As Sidney Lundquist made an amazing pass to Connor Boeser for his second goal of the night, With this game the game was tied at three to three with only 5 minutes left in the regulation. The rest of the period was great except for the fact that Ron Duke and Sidney Lundquist had gotten into a fight causing both of them to be kicked out the game. This left both teams without their best players going into overtime. Although this was a great loss for both teams, it still didn't faze them. They were all only focused on one thing and thing only, the trophy they all dreamed about as children, THE STANLEY CUP! So the teams headed back to their locker rooms for 10 minutes before overtime started to listen to there game plan. My coach walked in and got all the boys, motivated by saying “Do you remember that scene from that movie on Netflix? The team was down, and the coach, he gave that speech. Yea yea, you remember that scene? Remember.” Then the team roared up remembering the quote from that Netflix movie ready to …show more content…
We played our hearts out and were able to get a power play. Just then we noticed someone walking back to the bench, AND IT WAS BROCK. He had stitches all across the right side of his nose as he skated back onto the ice as my coach said “This guy really has no quit” Next with only 30 seconds left on our powerplay Brock got an amazing saucer pass from me to send him on a breakaway, as he skated past the faceoff circle he began to deke, first went left then he did a toe drag, but he wasn't fast enough as rival defenceman Lil Pump tripped him. Boeser angered looked over to the ref just to realize the ref was giving a signal, he spoke “Lil Pump number 14 tripped Connor Boeser number 6, clear the ice it's a penalty shot” The crowd went ecstatic chanting brock as he had a great chance to end the game. So the Brock got set and began his penalty shot, first he shot full speed to the left side of the net, faked a shot which fool the goalie then did a spin-O-Rama and tucked the puck into the net. Next, I remember the announcer screaming “HE'S DONE IT BROCK BOESER HAS WON THE STANLEY CUP FOR THE VANCOUVER SUN DEMONS!” As the whole team tackled Brock as we celebrated our win, I couldn't believe it. We were Stanley

    Marcus has been helping his mom at home to save his dad some trouble, but he’s coming to watch Coach Carter with us,” coach told us. I didn’t like feeling wrong about a teammate again but I was glad that Marcus was actually caring rather than selfish. We settled in at coach’s house to watch the movie to Coach Carter soon after the game. The internal turmoil of the players and the strict disposition of Coach Carter were entertaining and inspiring, characteristic of a great sports movie. I especially liked the scene when the whole team helped Timo finish his 2,500 pushups and 1,000 suicides sentenced to him by Coach Carter.…

    He didn’t make the team at first, but kept training and got invited to play with the team after a mere two months (Rothbart). Doug went on to play 10 seasons of pro hockey and even made it to the AHL which is a step below the NHL. When asked about fighting in hockey today Doug commented saying absolutely fighting should remain in the sport. “ I am living proof that a guy can make a career out of this, More players, especially the skilled guys like Crosby and the top tier players are all out because of body contact and NOT FIGHTING.So the NHL needs to take a look at the equipment for starters and the rules on how to body check an opponent without causing injuries before they just point the finger at fighting and ruin the game by banning it (Cliff).” More players also made careers protecting star players on the team. A perfect example of this is the Flyers Dave ‘The Hammer’ Schultz.…

    As I was about to shoot, the opposing player hooked me, causing me to miss on the shot, but was called by the ref, resulting in a penalty shot in overtime. I started to skate towards the goalie and contemplated what I should do, as the game was on my stick literally. I decided to try to deke the goalie out of position and it worked. As I shot the puck, the goalie tried to save it, but barely missed saving it, as the puck hit the back of the net and the light flashed. The game was over as my teammates piled on me, congratulating me on my goal.…

    I went into my next year of playing wanting to feel that same excitement I felt that final game. Sophomore year I was picked to try out goal because our JV goalie was now the varsity goalie. I agreed and at first I hated goalie I had to stay in a low position and block the balls from entering the goal. Not to mention the balls were the softest and I have the buries to prove their power. A few weeks later I actually started to enjoy being goalie when we had our first game I was so nervous because I didn’t want to let my team down or be scored on.…

    A nail bitter, teeth clincher, bone shaker. This game was everything you want when you take the family out for an evening of high school basketball. The Falcons and The Stallions battled tick for tac down to the very last second, but there could only be one winner. The first quarter was a bit sloppy, a lot of missed baskets, a lot of fouls, and plenty of turnovers, no one had gone on a stretch, after the first quarter the score was Green Run 10 Cox 9. The 2nd Qtr we had a little more action.…

    If you have read earlier chapters, I must sound as if I am a broken record but this is a key fundamental. I am not saying you should not have a special power play group for the end of a game when you need a goal in a vital game. I am discussing the other ninety-five percent of the time. Every boy loves the opportunity to skate power play and to score. If you want team harmony, it helps to give everyone a chance to be a hero.…

    The puck barely hit the ice before the Jr. Sens took possession, and made their toward our goal. Their forwards took the puck below the goal line, and passed it back up top to the defence, and before we could get a stick on the puck, it was already in the back of the net. 0-1. As the period continued, we were still down by one goal, with just five minutes left in the game. I hit the ice to take the next face off, but I heard my coach yell from the bench,…
