    Hockey
    Last game of the season and the game would decided which pool we ended up in for the first round of the playoffs. Oddly, a win or tie would put us in the harder pool playing the 1st and 5th place teams while a lose would put us against the 2nd and 6th place teams. In reality though the division is pretty well balanced and the only team we haven't beaten at least once was the team we were playing so regardless of who we play if we play well we can win.

    The game was pretty fast paced and neither team was playing particularly tight defense. However the goalies played well and the first period ended with us down 1-0. In the second period we kicked things into gear and took the lead 3-2. Toward the end of the period things started to chippy which was intensified when we scored early in the third period to go up 4-2. Unfortunately we relaxed after this which gave our opponents the chance to come back. That was really the story of the game. When we played hard we dominated but if we gave the other team space or made lazy plays they killed us. Eventually they clawed their way back and tied it 4-4. We quickly answered to make it 5-4 only for our opponents to score again to tie it 5-5 and that's how things ended.

    We ended the season with an okay record of 7-10-4. We had a pretty rough start to the season as we were bumped up 3 divisions from last Winter but after being moved down a division we settled in and played much better. Personally I finished with 2 G, 7 A in 9 games which is pretty good considering all of the time that I had off.

    The playoffs start next week but I won't be playing since it's a late game. Unfortunately we will be missing two of our other centers leaving us with only 1 so someone will have to step up for a game!

    Conditioning
    5 minute warm-up on the treadmill then 20 minutes of intervals on the stairmill. 40 seconds on (level 12), 40 seconds off (level 2). Level 12 seemed slower on these stairmills and this location is older so I wonder if they don't go as fast as the newer ones at my usual gym.

    I didn't play hockey last week because it was a late game (it was our first playoff game and they lost 4-1) and didn't play yesterday because it was an off week. I did get out for a walk though which wouldn't really be noteworthy except that I was wearing my son (in a baby carrier) so it made it into some low-intensity LISS.

    This coming Sunday's hockey game is do or die. We need to win in regulation to make it into the semi-finals. If we win in overtime the other team still gets a single point which will put them ahead of us still.
