This game was super fun! It was a beautiful day to drive into Boston. Met up with friends before and after the game for drinks. Had many drinks during the game. It's so much fun cheering on a win when drunk, when you clap your hands so hard they go numb and what-not.
These were seats I got for Christmas - same seats as the Rangers game (Balcony 329, Row 3). Great seats!
They played Buffalo, and there was a major jersey foul couple in front of us. They were Sabres fans with jerseys customized with their own names on it. To make matters worse, they were terrible hecklers. Buffalo scored first and of course they cheered which is fine, but when I naturally responded by making fun of Buffalo for the 1999 Cup loss, they did not even know what I was talking about. Then the guy turns around and tells me to say something relevant. Sorry buddy, that is ALWAYS RELEVANT until Buffalo wins a Cup. Then we made fun of Miller's comments calling Lucic a piece of shit, and the girl said something dumb like 'wow you know a lot about other team's quotes'. Well, no shit, that was a pretty infamous quote, and it was about our team. It was pretty amusing.
The game of course got awesome when Campbell finally tied it up at the end of the 2nd. The thing that sucks about the Garden is that when a goal is under review, they don't say WHY, and they don't show any replays until they are done reviewing, so we had no idea what was going on. But then it was a good goal. And the 3rd period was awesome - Boychuk's goal was perfection. And Krejci scored again - 4 goals in the last 2 games I have been to for him! Woohoo! What a great game.
My updated game log below shows that this year, I am 6-2, including 2 wins over Buffalo. I am seeing them play Buffalo again on April 7 - the last home game of the regular season! So far away...can't wait.
