Darren managed to snag a couple free tickets to the Leafs–Lightning game though work, and I could not pass up that kind of offer. Getting out of work on time was tough … but we managed to squeeze out in time to grab subway and hit the road.
Check out the photos.
It was a great game … Leafs dominated the first, Lightning pulled back in the second … then pulled ahead. Down 4-2 in the third the Leafs would not give up. They pulled back to within one about half way through the third and applied the pressure. With an empty net and 6 attackers the Leafs tied the game following a disputed icing. The final frame kept us on our feet … however, the game would end 4-4 (29 shots to 29 shots).
Next time I will be part of the home crowd as we head up for the March 5th game against the Devils. Though I must admit … with the number of Leafs jerseys in the crowd I almost felt like I WAS as part of the home crowd.
