Hockey Fights Cancer

November 24, 2018

We went to a Sharks game last night, and before the game started they had a moment of silence for those who are fighting or have lost their lives to cancer as part of the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer charitable initiative. They also asked the crowd to turn on the flash on their phone, which is the first time I’ve encountered an explicit request for that type of audience participation (usually it’s spontaneous). It was touching to see so many people participating.

The game was fun, with the Sharks shutting out the Canucks 4-0. Three of the Sharks’ goals came on power plays, despite our daughter asserting several times that the Sharks power play is awful (and to be fair, it is ranked pretty low). Overall the Sharks looked pretty sharp, while the Canucks seemed a little disjointed. And one of their players bit Vlasic in the final minutes of the game, which is just weird.
