Just an amazing night tonight - the Vancouver Giants won a thriller of a game over the Medicine Hat Tigers, 3-1 to win the 2007 Memorial Cup on home ice! My buddy Scott again came through with tickets for the game, and what a game it was. The home team started strong - huge hits everywhere, and there was even a good fight to keep the crowd pumped. The boys got a goal to put us up at the beginning of the second. The pace slowed a bit in the second, and Medicine Hat tied it up. But the third period, it was all us! The boys came out flying, and took the game to them. We took the lead with 4 1/2 minutes left, and an empty netter sealed the deal.
The Coliseum was awesome - a sell out crowd, all waving the white towels and making a lot of noise. It was bedlam, and a huge amount of fun. I didn't have a camera with me, so no pictures to share I'm afraid. but damn am I glad I was there!
