My first game was Devils vs. Hurricanes last season. We lost 4-2 and I didn't see a win in three times after that until we beat the Panthers late in the season when Kovy came back. Luckily they're 2-0-1 when I've been there, so at least that's turning around a bit.
Yeah I'm a bit of a hockey noobie, still learning the game, but I'm loving it. It's probably my favorite sport now since the NFL is pissing me off and I've gotten bored of the NBA and MLB.
