It was a warm night, and it was still a cold night.
It was also a night of great joy.
We were just chilling at the best garden hose in Boston, and I was looking at the hose and seeing a beautiful one that I was going to love.
I said, “Hey, do you want to go for a swim?”
She said, okay.
I went in the water and got my shirt on, and the hose was gone.
It looked like I had lost it.
But that was the first time in my life, in my entire life, that I had a beautiful hose.
I thought, wow, it was nice to have that, and that’s what I did.
That night, I had the greatest shower ever, and just went from there.
I’ve had the hose since.
When I came to play the game, it gave me a lot of confidence.
I’ve always felt like a winner when I get a good hose.
And I still do.
I have the hose with me everywhere I go.
I go in the shower, and every once in a while I’ll just go to the locker room and put it on my shirt and look at it.
That’s why I’m going to keep it.
It’s like my legacy in the game.
It was a perfect storm of circumstances.
The team was in the thick of things.
The first two years, we had some tough losses and injuries.
We lost two games to Chicago and St. Louis.
We had to go out and get the goalie of the year, a guy who had been a great starter in Boston.
Then we had the lockout.
So the team was at a very tough time.
They were in a tough spot, and all of a sudden, you see a young player coming into the league and playing well, so the pressure was off.
The pressure was really on us, and when it got to a point where we were losing games, I knew I had to do something.
So I took it upon myself.
I started the year by not playing at all, and then after the lockout, I went back to the ice and I started playing.
I felt good and ready to go, and within a couple of games, it felt like I was in a different place.
And then I felt great when I played.
The game was different.
We were playing at home.
I was doing well.
I didn’t have to worry about playing a game in front of my home crowd.
I feel like we have a lot to build on.
And I think that the most important thing is the team, and now it’s about building off that.
I think the team is ready for this, and we have the guys that can do it.
So it’s really just about finding a way to be more effective on the ice.
When we get the chance to play at home again, we’re going to have to be ready for it.
I don’t know if we’re ever going to be able to put the same type of energy into that game.
I know it’s going to hurt us on the road, but we have to put it in the tank.
I’m sure that’s a goal of mine.
