Benched: Calder Cup Final, Game Two

The Texas Stars have made it to the Calder Cup Finals and I managed to get tickets behind the Stars’ bench to games 1 and 2. Game 1 was incredible, the Stars beating St. John’s 6-3 to claim the first win of the series. Game 2 wasn’t as great; the Stars fell to the Ice Caps 2-1 after a valiant effort to fight their way into the lead.

The next 3 games of the series will be in St. John’s, which seems a bit far for a road trip, so I guess I’ll be cheering the Stars on from home.

I’m so glad I started going to Stars games this season. If there’s a local hockey team in your city you should check them out, it’s definitely a sport best experienced live. Also, we’re getting season tickets next season and I may have some guest seats for anyone who wants to come visit me in Austin. *hint hint*

Check out my photos from behind the bench below.

We sat right behind all the players’ extra sticks.
