The Bruins vs the Kings at the Staple Center. After finding just the right parking space we went in to see the mighty B’s!
Bonehead move: There were 4 tickets to the game, not 2. Ooops.
And all the greats were there!
Oh well, we still had fun just the two of us. Go Bruins!
And What a game it turned out to be. Bruins led going into the third but the Kings came back to force an OT and Shootout. Good hitting, good hockey. But the Bruins looked a little flat. I attribute it to cross country miles, San Jose the night before. All the makings for a sluggish game. I’m thankful my daughter didn’t notice.
She did manage to get on the big screen…this was my best effort at photographing it.
The best part about the day (for me) was befriending some Canucks sitting next to us…turns out they were the Bruins’ trainer’s family…brother and Dad. I didn’t make that connection until after the game the Bruins’ trainer caught up to us outside and gave Kaiya the game winning (or ending) puck. She had no idea what it was. Only that it “was cold Daddy!”
Very cool day.
