Home opener. Battle of Alberta. Going to the game, sitting in row 1 again. What more needs to be said? Can’t… fucking… wait. Hopefully we are on the winning side of this one, this time.

Wow. Best regular season game I’ve been to. I not only had front row seats to witness Eberle magic/history with his first ever NHL goal, but I got to watch all the goals but also some great fights – MacIntyre ko’ing Ivanans from a distance, Jones and Myer go at it, and perhaps the most underrated card on the night, Sutter vs Fraser. All I can say is you don’t fuck with the Sutters. Fraser went down hard – “Dowwwwn goooes Fraserrr!” (yes I know it’s “Frazier”, but I’m being witty, I think..). Plus Khabibulin got the shutout, although not overly tested. Hall looked really great in his first NHL game as well. Paajarvi didn’t quite jump out to me, but it might have had more to do with the magic shown by all the pieces of the Hall-Horcoff-Eberle line. It was their night. Hall disappeared a bit as the game wore on, but he sure was flying early on.
Good job to the boys tonight for not only not being pushed around, but pushing back so hard that we knocked them the eff out.
