Review, reflect and correct. As @innermindsports has taught me do your homework before and after the game. Store the correct scenario in detail and play the corrected version through in your mind. The #goodhabits Will be stored.

Needs a bit of a touch up but modified hand grab on the paddle of my #WarrriorCR1. More control on low shots and better mobility and grip on my stick. Able to activate wrist, elbow and shoulder a little easier and move into pucks.
On my #frontierhockey
stick the shoulders are narrowed down that I can have this grip without making a modification.

Shout out to my wonderful equipment managers in #FotskΓ€l for not letting me use power tools πŸ˜‚

Not a bad first game back. Win on the road after a great team game. Might not have a lot of wins on the year but every ice time is a step forward and an improvement.
On a #goalie note show up ready to play every game. #hockey is an unpredictable game sometimes, in this case a last minute starting call. #Perform and always be ready for the call.

#Repost from @keeks2915 with @regram.app ... Jeff Glass 32- First NHL game and win! (Survivor Bias)

Everyone loves a great heartwarming story of rewarded perseverance. Jeff's story is amazing. He kicked around the minors since he was a top prospect years ago in Juniors well over a decade ago. His journey and result should be congratulated and serve to prove things like this can happen if you just stick with it.

But there is a danger in "latching on" to this story because of a well documented Psychological / Statistical issue, called Survivor Bias. In short, it describes attributes to a survivor (or in Jeff's case one who never gave up) while ignoring the unseen massive group of people who tried just as hard etc. but failed to make it to their first NHL win.

Jeff proved it CAN happen if luck, work ethic, skill and perseverance are in place. It doesn't prove it will happen if you do the EXACT same things he did. I would guess there have been 100,000 goalie's in the world over the last 15 years that we're hoping for the same result.

This "cherry picking" with the Jeff Glass story does a disservice if it isn't grounded in well reasoned critical thinking. Should all goalies playing in the minors keep kicking away at it until they are 32 because Jeff proved it can happen? There are a lot of goalies playing now in the minors that will never play in the NHL and starting your real world career at 32 doesn't sound that bad except that you won't be able to retire until you are 70! So use your available time now to kick your own butt and leave now stone unturned removing all your weakness. Chase your dreams with vigor but have a cold well reasoned critical thinking ability about what is really involved.

2 points out of 3 is still 2 points. Starting off the second series with a good team effort.

Great speech here by E.T. if we never prepare for the downs how can we bounce back?
