Man, I'm jealous of you guys...I only went to two Wings games this year. If I lived closer to Detroit and I had the disposable income, I'd go to more...I go to one or two a season. I went to the first Anaheim game, Sergei's return to the Joe and I went to Game 1 of the Calgary series (on my birthday).
Dude, I average one game every five years. Living 5 driving hours away from Vancouver does not make seeing a game an easy task. Sionce Vancouver is a heavy hockey town, I have to plan months in advance to what game I want to see that doesnt interfere with school. Then I have to book a damn hotel and I need to save up for food, gas, leisure, ect. For me it costs more to go to Vancouver than it does to get into GM Place! I envy those Kamloops people, they are so close to Vancouver that its only a day trip for them!
I live in kelowna, bc and its a 4 hour drive to Vancouver.
I went to one game this season
Canucks 4 Blue Jackets 5
It was cool even though they lost the game. This was my first game in 8 years. I would love to go to a Sabres game one day and I plan to go to more canuck games in the future. It's a good thing I didn't go to the Buffalo Van game which canucks won 6-1, because I was going to.
Zebeebs do you mean you saw that game another year because,
The Oilers never beat the sabres 5-2 last season? Not that it matters but...
The Oilers won 4-1 in there only meeting this year. I only remember this because my Dad reminds me all the time as He is a long time Oiler fan. Maybe you just forgot the score or it was another season.
Eh, my dad's company has season tickets, so I went to ten games this season...

Both games were Boston/Toronto in the ACC. The tickets sell like hotcakes there and it costs a fortune just for me and friend to go see the game. I like to make all three games they play against Boston, but the wallet didn't support that motion in the least.
Next year, I think I'll go to three games at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo to see Boston play becuase even with the currency conversion its still cheaper than Toronto.
Opening game for the Habs in Ottawa, saw them got whooped 5-2 . But Hainsey scored a pretty sweet goal so it wasn't so bad.
We almot got the crap beat out of us whenver the Habs scored a goal...it was funny.
Funny detail left out of this story: I gave him the ticket.. it was a section 100 ticket worth over 170$. Thinking back to it, I'm not exactly sure as to why I did it since the gift wasn't even appreciated.. :mad:
I went to 11 regular season games.
Some of them were more memorable than others, like:
Oct. 9th- Van Vs Cal-- First game of the season
Oct. 22nd- Van Vs Stl-- First Meeting btw the two since the playoffs and the game where Bert hit Jackman
Nov 18th- Van Vs Mont. -- Bert skates in O.T. looks like he is just killing time and makes a nice pass to Ohlund for the O.T. winner.
Dec. 11th Van Vs. Col -- First Meeting of the year and what a game.
Feb 24th- Van Vs. Det -- D. Sedin beats Detroit by himself with his 4 goal performance.
And then i went to 1 playoff game, though we lost, i still had a wicked time. Can't wait till next year...Whenever that is!
