My family and I experienced our first live hockey game last week Friday, November 17th, 2017. The game was between Halifax Mooseheads of Nova Scotia and Saint John Sea Dogs of New Brunswick. It took place at the Scotia Bank centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
It was fun to watch but I did not enjoy the parts where they fought themselves. I hear the fights are part of the game, but it was not a delight for me to watch.
Saint John Sea Dogs of New Brunswick won the game.
The Chronicle Herald of Halifax gives a detailed report of the game in the below link:
There were also some other fun and entertaining activities in between the game. I will be sharing some videos on my social media pages.
According to Wikipedia:
“The Halifax Mooseheads are a Canadian major junior ice hockey club in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
