Gameday: Sharks vs. Red Wings

It's almost March now and I'm still enjoying my Christmas presents, well at least one of them. I got a pair of Wings tickets way back in December for a game that seemed like forever away. That day came and went yesterday as the Wings hosted the San Jose Sharks down at Joe Louis Arena for a Sunday matinee.

Here's a look at the view from section 220. Not bad. We were on the end of the rink where the Wings were in the offensive zone twice. This means I had a great view of the first goal of the game as well as the eventual winning goal by Darren Helm in the third period.

In case any of you live in a cave when it comes to the NHL lately, this was the Wings 23rd consecutive win on home ice. It was also the last game in a long home stand for the Wings. This could very well have been the game that sets the record, hopefully not though, so I figured a picture of the scoreboard at the end of the game would be pretty neat.

Here are the highlights from the game:

All in all, it was a great day as the weather was decent, we had some great pizza across the street from the Joe before the game, and the Wings kept the streak alive. Plus, even with a 45 minute drive home from the game, we were home before dinner time, something that doesn't happen all that ofter with the usual 7:30 start times.

So that was the highlight of my weekend. Anyone else make it to any other games lately?
