My favorite memories...
2000 Western Conference Finals...Game 7
*Hearing the crowd chant "Eddie's Better" for the first time against the AVS was great.
*The great Guy Carbonneau
making fun of me in the stands during the pregame warmup (Guy laughed at me while I was in a hypnotic state watching Eddie
during his stretching routine).
*Guy skating over to me at the end of the game to celebrate the win before congratulating
2000 Finals --Game 6
*After the crowd was initially silenced on the winning goal and Eddie skates over to the bench, the crowd spontaneously
starts cheering "Eddie, Eddie" for the great effort during the entire season.
*Seeing Guy skate off the ice
for the last time and knowing I was there to witness one of the classiest men in hockey play his last NHL game.
Pregame Ceremony when Montreal comes to town
*The team honored former players of the Cup-winning team (Ludwig, Chambers, Skrudland, and Carbonneau).
2000-2001 Season Opener with the AVS
*Tormenting Patrick "the Freak" Roy as he leaves the ice after each period is always a good time!
into a yelling match after the game with Scott Parker because I was being mean to his head-bobbing goaltender!
The best seat to watch the game... Section 210 Row A Seat 3.
*It seemed that in that seat you controlled the entire arena. I had a perfect view of Eddie, the bench, and the entire
The best seat to watch Eddie and heckle the visiting team... Section 107 Row AA Seat 1.
*In this seat you could stare at Eddie in net during the first and third period. This seat was also at the tunnel where
the opposing team would enter and leave the ice. It was especially fun when someone I hated came to town. I would be able
to heckle them at each intermission and after the game. The only downside to this seat was that with Eddie so close, there
was no way to really concentrate on the rest of the game.
