After searching high and low … we finally came home with the prize
In a weekend where the rabid fans are taking home the box set of Star Wars … I pull a video game off the shelf. And after a pleasant Indian dinner, some pie and ice cream, and a few games of UNO … I head to the rink.
And once I got the feel of the controls it was time to step out on the ice … as non other than Vancouver of course. Matching head-to-head at home against the defending champions … Tampa Bay!
The first period was a struggle as I went down by 3. And it was 5-1 Tampa before I started to hit the twine a couple times. After a good effort in the ring by Allen, I managed to end the period tied at 5 a side. With one second to go in the third and the face-off in the offensive zone … I tried something tricky. The puck hit the ice, Morrison with a quick flick stuck the puck just inside the far post … 0.2 seconds left on the clock … to put the Canucks up by 3. Great game boys … and to think there would not be a season this year 🙂
