The real number 5 figured in on every goal except one that his team scored, netting 1-goal and assisting on 4 others. His team needed all those points too as they found themselves in a wild shootout of a game. Ironically it was Ray sending out a premonition text before the game, informing the voters of this award “since he didn’t have the money to buy himself a cup of coffee today, this might just be the day he could use a Dunkin Donut gift card!”

Her heads up play on the blue line kept the ball in that directly resulted in her team scoring a key goal. In addition, Colleen had three open shots on net, which some of the guys can learn that it is more important to actually get your shot on net rather than have your shot miss the net and reverberate loudly when it makes contact with the boards.

Every once in a while, the “impact moment” overrules all of that. Such was the case with Carlos. With his team trailing 3-0 and heading to a loss, Carlos stepped up and changed all that with his impact moment in the last minute of the second period. In twenty-four seconds, Carlos scored 2-goals and then watched his efforts lead to the tying goal only sixteen seconds later. His moment changed this game and team fortunes earning them a well earned tie.
