HP Pavilion seats 17K people, and my seat was located 2 rows behind the Detroit Red Wings' bench towards center ice. Within the first few opening minutes, as I was eating my Dippin' Dots there was a fight towards center ice near the Sharks' bench. I also saw Nicklas Lidstrom scored the first goal of the game for the Red Wings. It must have been his birthday present to himself, since his actual birthday was the day before.
The final score of the game was 2-1, and the Sharks won. I had to run to the airport, so I missed the goals scored by Joe Pavelski and Benn Ferriero.
Game 2 is today in San Jose at 3PM ET.
