Face Off

First goal of the night

Switched seats

Last fight of the night

Hi from Vancouver.

I have to tell the truth, I stole the title of todays blog from my cousin! Peter and I were invited to tag along to see the Vancouver Edmonton game at BC Place. We had two sets of seats....Heidi and I sat in the 2nd row just right of the Oilers bench. Peter and Paul were front row balcony center ice.....also great seats for watching the game. To be fair we traded seats between the 2nd and 3rd period. This was the first time we had ever been to a hockey game and it was fun.

Now for those of you who did not watch the game I will explain todays title. Just 19 seconds into the game and the first fight broke out. This set the tone for the rest of the game. We heard that this game had one of the most fights and penalties (at least for BC Place). In spite of all that, it was exciting being up close to all the action!

The pictures you see are of the face off at the start of the game and then the first goal of the game - right in front of us! I caught the picture just before everyone jumped up and blocked my view. During the third period I took a picture of the guys sittig in our seats (after we switched places). At the end of the game I took this picture of the last fight....with 3.5 seconds left both teams had everyone, except the goalies, with penalties!

After the game, we stopped to get a gelato ice cream cone. This place had 120 different flavours! I had the chocolate grand marnier and Peter had the cinnamon chocolate...very, very good!

We had a fantastic weekend - relaxing and fun. Look forward to many more....Peter & Connie
