|The Ottawa Sun the day after my hat trick in game 5|
Monday was a laid back type of day because we had game 4 in Belleville the next night. We had a fairly hard practice just to get a sweat on and stay fresh for game 4. Other than that I didn't do much on Monday. I watched a lot of the tv series Breaking Bad at my billets house.
Tuesday the majority of the team gathered at Johnny Farinas around noon to grab a nice meal before the bus headed to Belleville at 2. Tuesday's game was a crazy game. We came out kind of flat and went down 2-0 early and ended giving up 1 more with 10 min left in the third but then we found a spark. Toffoli started a 3 goal comeback on the power play and Cardwell finished the comeback with 1 minute left in regulation. It was crazy. Unfortunately we lost 13 minutes into overtime but at least we showed a lot of fight to be able to come back. I had 1 assist. After the game we drove back to Ottawa.
Wednesday was a day off for us, so a few of us went for a mall walk and then I finished up season 2 of Breaking Bad and relaxed the rest of the day. Rest is important during playoffs that's for sure.
Thursday we got back on the ice and had a great practice. Things were getting real intense due to the anticipation of Friday nights game 5 which was a huge game for the series.
