Heritage Classic final score: Calgary 4, Montreal 0

After almost a year of hype, the 2011 NHL Heritage Classic is now a page in history. The game was a sellout, with 41,022 fans braving the elements to attend, and I’m happy to say that I was a part of it. From the moment my family and I started layering-up in our warm clothing […]

Phaneuf’s return to the Dome spoiled. Calgary Maple Flames win!

After all the media circus surrounding this game, I suppose it is appropriate that both of the captains were relatively silent and one of the teams broke down completely and allowed 3 goals in 57 seconds. While the Flames and Leafs have both proven that they are capable of letting in 3 goals so fast, […]
