Default Your first NHL game and other prominent games you attended

First game - Upper level seats Boston Garden 1970s

2nd game - Spectrum Philadelphia. 1980. Flyers score two in the last minute
of the game to tie the Bruins 3-3.

Devils joined the league in the mid 80s and tickets were $10 a piece, and you could sit anywhere you wanted because the place was empty. Saw Mario
play quite a few games there in the 80s, plus this rookie named Sakic. Met Joe in the dressing room after the game. Very nice guy.

Lots of games at Madison Square Garden. A great place to see the game.
One night Rod Gilbert between periods was telling some Habs fans how their rookie goalie Carey Price was terrible. Price did have a bad night and struggled early on in his career.

Saw Gretzky in Philadelphia. Saw Orr in Boston. Saw Lemieux in NJ and NY.
Never saw Gordie, even though he played until 1980.
