Game 24: T-Birds Greased by Oil Kings

Hello again T-Birds fans!  Sorry for the long time between posts lately, I’ve been busy with Seattle U. photos and have been dealing with computer problems.  It’s all fixed now, however, so I do have time for a quick post about Edmont0n.  A word of warning, though; I was without a 70-200mm zoom lens for that game, so I had just my 28-75mm lens and couldn’t get many close-ups.  I did get some, however, and here they are…

Left wing Chance Lund skates down-ice towards the Edmonton goal in the first period.

Sorry for the small amount of photos, but at least now I know I shouldn’t use only a short-range lens to cover a complete game.  So I have that going for me…
Anyways, the T-Birds take on Portland tonight at 7 at the ShoWare Center.  Come on down to Kent and cheer on them on!

‘Til then, go T-Birds!
