    Since Drew and his '05 Storm hockey team has been eliminated from the playoffs and there is nothing left of the season beyond practices, the coaches decided to schedule a couple of scrimmages for the kids to help break up the routine just a bit and keep them in game shape. The first of those scrimmages took place today against the 05 Michigan Travelers, a team that beat the Storm twice during the regular season, once by a 5-3 score and once by a 2-1 margin. Things looked promising today for the Storm team, after battling through a scoreless first period they managed to take a 2-0 lead in the second. All they had to do was hold on for 13 minutes in the third and they would secure a victory. Unfortunately they weren't able to do so, in part due to shaky defense by Drew (I still don't like him on the back end, though he may eventually get used to it). While he had a couple of shots on goal from the point, he also had a couple of crucial turnovers late as well as getting caught out of position a couple of times. He took a beating today, though, getting tripped down to the ice and landing flat on his back once (on a play where no penalty was called) and also taking a shot to the stomach on another play. He kept playing, however, showing that he can be tough when his team needs him. The 2-2 tie wasn't the result that anyone was looking for, but it represents real progress by the team. Let's keep it up!
