Eddie Didn’t Lack, But The Rest Of The Canucks Sucked
After breakfast, we walked over to the Outlet Mall, but only bought a few items of clothing and some books. A huge multiplex theatre was right next door, and we were just in time for a showing of “Her”, a strangely thought-provoking film. but well worth seeing, especially for $5.00 a ticket! We may go back tomorrow morning and watch another, as we only have a 2-hour drive to Ajo.
After returning to the hotel, we spent some time reading by the pool, then came back to the room, donned our Canuck jerseys, and made the 20-minute walk over to the arena in time to catch the warm-up. Turned out that was the biggest effort the Canucks put in all night. Eddie Lack, the Canucks goaltender, played his heart out; the rest of the Canucks, despite being beaten 9-1 the night before, seemed to feel no desire to redeem themselves. Maybe next year…
Lest we sound embittered, we did have a wonderful time, and enjoyed bantering with Coyotes fans surrounding us, and commiserating with other Canucks fans, who were plentiful. As mentioned, we are off to Ajo tomorrow for a couple of nights, with plans to visit Organ Pipe Cactus National Park.
