sharks vs. ducks

i went to the san jose sharks game last night. they played the anaheim mighty ducks. this also happened to be my first hockey game. i’m told that i’ve been spoiled watching this as my first hockey game because so many things happened during this game that most other games will seem boring in comparison.

i’ve never watched a hockey game in its entirety on tv before, mostly because i thought it was really boring, but watching it live was pretty cool. i didn’t understand all of the rules, but still, it was rather exciting. watching the game live gives you a much better appreciation for turnovers, defensive plays, and well-executed plays.

it was a high scoring game (4-1), there was a hat trick (one player scored 3 goals in one game), and a fight! how much more excitement can you ask for in a game?
