Atlanta. And ironically NATE Thompson didn't play. In Atlanta. Coincidence? Or cheating? It's very hard to give this team TRUST and RESPECT when they play like that. OH - and the Thrashers coach used to coach the CHICAGO WOLVES!

lol, I was watching the highlights of that game last night thinking to myself, there's no way they would blow a two-goal lead, that would be too ironic... oh man.

Pretty good Leafs-Habs game, at least the first two periods.

I feel like I'm finally getting into hockey again. Baseball really consumed my sports interest the past two months, but for the first time this year I'm actually really excited for a Nucks game. Here's hoping it's a good one

Last night was the most interesting Canucks-Wild game I've ever seen. Normally games between these two teams are boring, but last night was awesome, and Luongo got his 3rd shutout in a row!

I'm going to the next game, which is on Wednesday vs Colorado, so we'll see if he can hang in there to make it 4 shutouts!


Glad you had fun, Sicy! Actually seeing the games in person is SO much better than on TV!

The games are good in person but it's so strange not to hear the live broadcast.

Who did San Jose play Sicy? I can't make out their uniforms.

And Bomac, I second the sentiment...ugh...

Welcome to the wonderful world of hockey, Sicy. Enjoy the ride, it's a fun one!

And the Sharks are perennial contenders, but they never seem to get over that one final hurdle.

Sharks fans are crazy. Or maybe all hockey fans are crazy, I'm not sure For some reason everyone boo'd on certain parts of the national anthem (I canNOT figure out why) and cheered on other parts. And they have all these quirks and things they do on cue. Then there's the shark guy that goes around in the crowd banging his drum and everyone responds. And other people that throw free stuff into the crowd (of course they never came over to our section ) They also have these certain chants and cheers they do and shark hand signals haha. I felt like a total n00b it was pretty funny.

Yup, hockey fans can be pretty crazy. I can't explain anything that people did at your game, but I think that's pretty typical behaviour at most hockey games.

I'm so excited to see the Canucks on Wednesday. This will be my first game of the season.

Maybe the "star" parts?

Hockey fans certainly can be crazy. Here in Canada, it's like a religion! It's great that you made it to a game...hopefully the first of many. You'll be hooked in no time. When it's played at its highest level, I'm convinced that hockey is the greatest game in the world.

From now on, when someone gets unruly here, you can find inspiration in your new-found sport...




Amazing comeback by Pittsburgh tonight.

Brian Burke has resigned as GM of Anaheim. Hmmm, I wonder where he'll go next?
