Our family pack came with a hot dog, chips & a drink each
We arrived early enough where there weren't a ton of people around the concession stands to get our food that came with our family pack. Then we made the trek up those horribly small & dangerous steps up to our section. We found that our section was right behind our team's goal for the first period, yay! I have realized that almost any seat is a good seat for hockey :)
Waiting for the game to start!
I loved that our arena is called the Sharks Tank during hockey season, hehe. Also loved the fact that our players skated out from a glowing shark head :P
Sharks players coming out
I must say the first period had me worried as Minnesota Wild made two goals while we had nothing. But after the second period, we tied it up 2-2 on the scoreboard, quite exciting! Whew, I almost thought we'd have a miserable loss for my first game, haha.
Our first goal of the night!
I met up with Carrie (who I met at NOH8 last year) after the end of the second period to say hi! I'm envious of her season tickets, haha. Afterwards, I hit the little girl's room (which was a mile long) before heading back for the last period. Neither team scored during the last period so they played overtime & we won with a last minute goal, yayy!!!
Overtime goal, what?! :D
Certain things bugged me during the game, but that certainly did not spoil the fun of my first hockey game! I have to admit I also loved seeing the players get into a brawl, haha. Much more exciting than the actual play itself at times. Loved that my first game was a win for our team, too! Go Sharks! I certainly can't wait for my next game :)
