Reader's Submission: Some Pics from the Buffalo Game

Canucks Hockey Blog reader, Simon Wong, was in Buffalo on Friday night and sent in the following observations from the game:

... there were a lot of Vancouver fans from Toronto at the game. It seemed like all the nuckleheads shelled out for the good seats... it was great, we were having fun with the Sabres fans all night. It was one of the best games I've attended in a while. With Sabourin it added excitement/angst whenever the puck was in our zone. Reminds me of Cloutier's days in net. Sabourin had some flashy saves and overall a great game, but he was prone to let out a rebound on every shot and given his small size you could always see a lot of net, no way he could control the pace of the game the way Luongo does.

Thanks, Simon, for the first-hand account.

On TV, it totally looked like the many Canucks fans in the stands were having a great time. I watched the game with John and Rebecca at Fogg and Sudds, and John mentioned the atmosphere looked like something out of a US college football game.

Here are some of Simon's pics from the game. Enjoy!

A LOT OF Canucks fans in the stands!

Watched my download of the game yesterday afternoon. I shielded myself from the results, so I was treated to one heck of a game. It was great to see all the canuck fans in attendance...but, the whole no-shirt, spelling words on my fat belly, football-fan sort of thing was well...wierd.

But I guess, if I knew I wasn't going to see the Canucks in another 3 years...I'd acting like a moron too!
