Was a really great experience, although you could clearly see how they've taken the whole NHL concept to use there. Ok, there are some cultural differences, but all in all the event was what you'd expect from a hockey game.
Our seats were right above the home teams fan section, so you can imagine how loud it was, especially when the home team was struggling a lot in the first two periods. They did win 3-2 in the end, but gave Barys way too many chances - even giving them two 5-on-3 power plays.
Even if I'm not really a hockey fan, it was a really nice night out.
Did you end up wearing that Finnish jersey?
On a different note, BYE BYE LOU!
