One of my favorite hockey memories is going to a Lake Erie Monsters game with the Dave and the kids. The office where Dave’s mom works held a family night at a game and we attended. It was lots of fun and Logan especially enjoyed watching the game. Even though he was pretty little when we went, he still remembers it and talks about it today. It was fun having everyone together and it’s a great memory.

I think this is such a fun contest and perfect for any hockey fan. I’m also excited to offer the fantastic giveaway below!

    When my son was first learning how to play hockey at the ice rink, there was another group of little kids (around 3 years old) who were just learning how to skate. They would push an orange traffic cone around the ice to keep them from falling down. However, the cone would slide away, and kids would fall, and they’d lay there on the ice motionless, until one of the adults would come by to pick them up and bring their cone back. It was hysterical, and so cute to watch. The adults didn’t have time to do anything else but pick kids up off the ice! They’d pick up one and 3 more would fall!

The whole game everyone was High fiving strangers. Then it happened Pominville’s scored the game winner in overtime during the 2005-2006 playoffs against Ottawa which sent the Sabres into the Eastern Conference Finals against Carolina. The now infamous call by Rick Jenerette, “Oh, now do you believe? Now do you believe? These guys are good, scary good.” Everyone was yelling and hugging and high fiving and spilling drinks left and right. Nobody cared, we knew that moment was special.

  79. We had season tickets to the Florida Panthers when I was younger and they just started out as a team. My sister was a huge fan … I mean, she cried when they lost. I was a big fan but not like that :)

    My favorite year was the “year of the rat” which happened to commemorate a rat that was on the ice, I believe, during the home game.
