Oil Spilt: Canucks Win In Edmonton

It was a game made for a first time visit to Edmonton's Rexall Place and the Vancouver Canucks didn't disappoint - they crushed the Oilers 5-2 last night. The Canucks scored within the first minute and they didn't let up. The Oilers looked lazy and sloppy and a majority of the sold-out crowd soon came out as Canucks fans. I've never seen (or heard) so many of the opposing team's fans at any game. The ratio sounded 50-50 and at one point the "Go, Canucks Go!" chant drowned out the "Let's Go, Oilers, Let's Go!"

Built in 1974, the Rexall is an old concrete monstrosity and our seats were cramped. We had a great view of the action, especially during the second period when the Oilers were in our end and the Canucks scored 2.

It was a special night for Yuko and I, too. It was her very first time to attend a live NHL game and we're still working on "O Canada." She was a great sport and now a bona fide Canucks' fan.
