    It's the Ducks vs. Calgary. I lucked into free tickets for our family :) We've already seen one fist fight on the ice. Calgary scored first with about 4 minutes left in the first period, and then the Ducks got two back to back goals within the next minute!

    Here's the pregame warmup:


    Here's a shot of a huge sheep blimp that was dropping coupons on the arena:


    So far it's a fun evening and everyone is behaving!

    That poor sheep! What were EWE doing to it???
    Glad you guys are having fun! I love going to hockey games, the one times I am actually into the violence. LOL

    I spoke too soon... difficult child 1 is biting heads off. Oh well, we made it thru the 1st period! So much for the second :(

    Unbelievable! 18 seconds left in the 3rd period and Calgary scores to tie the game and send it into overtime!

    OMG. My easy child, she plays hockey, would be so envious. Sounds like you made it to a exciting game! Being Canadian, please sent a WHOOP WHOOP to Calgary for me ;)

    Enjoy. A NHL game, just like NBA etc can be pretty exciting, all the energy in the audience etc.

    And the Ducks win it! Woo-hoooo! Teemu Selanne scored the only goal in the sudden-death shoot-out :D And we nearly left with just 38 seconds in the third period with the Ducks up by 1. Good thing we stayed! Ugh, but we got home by 10:30pm which is late for a school night. Oh well. Sometimes you just have to live a little, huh?
