I was at the game last night at it was an amazing experience. Just really great to have any form of hockey back, especially with a bunch of NHL pros. Walking around AC during the day it was very cool to see lots of people in hockey apparel (jerseys, hats, shirts, etc). And at least in my case, everyone kinda gave one another a 'nod' when they saw them wearing some kind of hockey team item as if to say "I don't care what team you like just as long as we get to see hockey." The game itself was pretty wild; i was fortunate enough to be able to get seats right on the glass. It was very much an all-star game atmosphere with guys messing with one another, smiling, laughing, not a ton of defense and having a lot of fun. I've been to many games before but never been to a game before with seats this good so it really was a site to see (i was in the away team corner). I have to say, watching Lundqvist was a sight to see. He played out of his mind at times, like he's still in playoff mode. But as always it was a awesome to see Marty flash the leather and handle the puck in his own end. He even got an assist on an Andy Greene top shelf goal. Lot of cheers to bring back hockey and a couple to fire Bettman. And the usual 'Marty' sing-song chants but all in good fun at this point. Daniel Alfredsson waved at me which was cool and Matt Martin (islanders) and Lundqvist all threw their sticks in the crowd afterwards. Alfie skated right to me and tossed his stick over but signaled to give it to the small kid behind me so i was happy to oblige. Here are a few photos from the game...
