Texas Trip - Stars vs. Blackhawks
Game winning goal from the game on Wednesday. Nice goal. I was hoping the game would go to a shootout. We had great seats for the game. About 15 rows up in the corner. Originally $85 seats, we got them for $25. Great deal for college students.
It was fun being at the game for when they yell out "Stars!" during the national anthem. It was also funny to see ice girls since that is a very American thing to have at a hockey game. During warmups we went down by the ice to watch them practice and I took a bunch of pictures. So many young guns on Chicago: Toews, Kane, Versteeg, Baker, Seabrook, etc. Also nice to see an ex-Hab in Huet and band-aid man Martin Havlat. There were three Maritimers playing too. Aaron Johnson (Port Hawksbury, NS), Brad Richards (Murray Harbour, PEI) and Steve Ott (Summerside I think, PEI). I also enjoyed having the chance to yell at Mike Riberio since I can't stand the guy. At all.
The teams went back and forth for the first two periods until Versteeg scored a nice goal to go ahead 4-3. They scored another in the third to make it 5-3, then Kane potted the empty netter to seal the deal 6-3.
