What a tight race we are in – one point in the standings separates us in the division lead with three other teams. This should go down to the wire! We have nine games left – all of ’em are huge!
The annual team picture was taken on Monday before practice. I was “promoted” from the back row last year to the third row this year. Team pics traditionally have veteran players closer to the front with rookies in the back. It’s always a fun day. I’m amazed at how fast they can get us out there, line us up and boom – it’s over. I think the entire thing took less than five minutes.
We have two more big home games this week – Vancouver Thursday and Calgary Saturday. Come out and cheer us on! Then it’s off to Western Canada again. Going there twice in one month is strange, but that’s the NHL.
See you at the games!
