Not bad for a 2-1/2 year old. (And the tickets were free, so nothing "lost") He also has a cold, so we didn't want to push him.

In that first period, we saw exactly one great shift out of the CBJ. Shame they couldn't convert that power play-like control of the puck in the offensive zone into a goal.

I caught the rest of the game on radio and then TV. Kinda odd to see 1/3 of the game, listen to 1/6 and then see the balance on TV. George & Bob come across as having the better time of the broadcasters.

I'm still amazed that Calgary is flirting with playoff-level status. Kipper was the only thing standing between them and a CBJ blowout.
Seemed like there were quite a few little ones there last night, DBJ, hope yours enjoyed what he saw. I noticed Leo was there with his family, including what must be a very new addition. Congratulations to Mr. And Mrs. Welsh (and the new kid's big brother!).
