However, they played a great game, a strong series, defying some of the odds due to injuries.
Despite the fact that my chosen team did not win, I learned a few things about hockey:
- Too many players on the ice is a no-no.
- Refereeing can make or break a game.
- Concussions are an all-too-frequent hazard of this professional sport.
Seems to me that team camaraderie & mentorship play a great role in support as teams battle the odds.
Hockey is like that for sure.
Question for other sports fans: have you learned anything lately from some of your favourite teams?
