Stuff I’ve Seen at the Saddledome

I went to the Flames/Islanders game on Friday, which was surprisingly enjoyable given the teams involved. (The Flames were trailing 3-1 with ten minutes left to play; when the game ended they’d won 4-3, with former Leaf Joe Colborne scoring twice.) The game was the latest thing I’ve seen at the Saddledome. Here are most of the others!

This list is incomplete. I know for a fact it’s missing the following three things:

  • Two Calgary Roughnecks National Lacrosse League games
  • A Calgary Hitman Western Hockey League playoff game (any idea when that was, TJP?)

It might also be missing one Flames/Canucks and/or one Flames/Red Wings game. And it’s a bit shorter than it once was: I’d originally listed a February 11, 2012 game between the Flames and the Canucks, then realized I’d watched it a bar with my friend Shannon. I’ll do some digging and see if I can make this list as complete as “Stuff I’ve Seen at the Air Canada Centre.”
