Last week I was fortunate enough to score two free tickets to see the Toronto Maple Leafs play at the Air Canada Centre! I took my dad with me, as he and I are the only two in the family who bleed blue. We had a blast cheering for our home team and I'm so glad I brought my camera and my telephoto lens! (SHHH...we had seats in the 300's.)
Here are some photos I took during the game :)
Pre-game warm up.
The Minnisota Wild got a goal in, but then Mason Raymond scored our third goal not long after, making it 3-1 Leafs in the second period. Whoohoo!
Games and things to keep the crowd entertained during second intermission. The guy above won a bunch of goodies including a Leafs sweater!
Then the best thing of the night happened.
Sure, it was awesome the Leafs were up 3-1, but as the third period was nearing the end, the Wild pulled their goalie. This is when Raymond got a hold of the puck, sped down the rink towards the goal and went to pass to Kessel.
Read about it here.
We had a great night and I can't wait to go watch the Leafs play at the ACC again. Even if I don't there's still plenty of games left in the season and I guarantee you I'll be watching.
Thanks to Mr. Simmons for giving me his tickets and thanks to my dad for coming out with me!
