Coming Down to the Wire
Hi all! During our off-day on Monday, we had a mini-golf tournament and just kind of hung low. We were going to do a team dinner but most of us just kind of went with our families and kind of did our own thing. We thought it would be a good idea to let people get away from everybody and just kind of regroup their thoughts so it was a pretty relaxing day overall. The weather was nice so couldn't complain!

On Tuesday night, we lost another tough one (2-1 to the Detroit Red Wings) and how we lost it was even tougher (on a goal 16:18 into the third period).

But, there were a lot of positives in the game. In the third period we had a lot of turnovers but other than that it was a pretty positive effort moving forward.

(With three seconds remaining in the third, I was whistled for goalie interference and a 10-minute game misconduct) There were so many guys battling in front of the net late in the game when we had pulled our goalie for the extra attacker and I went toward the cage. I guess I nicked the goalie … I don't know, and then one thing led to another.

Now, we're looking to close out the tournament with a victory (against the Columbus Blue Jackets at 1:30 p.m.). Certainly if we won on Tuesday, we would have been in the finals, but we lost and we are where we are now so we'll just refocus and guys are still playing for spots on the team this year so everyone will be fired up for the game.

Personally, I felt good with my effort. Playing with Ian (Cole), I really felt comfortable out there. We both moved the puck pretty well. Team wise, we've done a pretty good job. We knew we had a pretty good team coming in and it's tough to lose the way we did. We're hoping to close out on a positive note now.

Check back Wednesday night for my final blog.
