Atlanta Thrashers Vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
April 5, 2008

Thrashers

It was the last game of the season, so we splurged for some really great seats. Section 114, Row C, Seats 8 & 9 (third row from the ice, two seats away from the Thrashers' tunnel.) It was really a different experience being that close to the bench. It certainly taught me one thing... it's time for a new camera. ;)


One of our tickets that evening.
