Edmonton Blogging

The hockey club arrived in Edmonton in the mid-afternoon yesterday and it's been eventful ever since.

We dropped off the gear at Rexall Place and the Oilers were gracious enough to give us a tour of their dressing room area. Let's keep in mind it's gameday for the Oil and we are three hours away from face-off against the Minnesota Wild.

Good thing Broncos Head Coach / GM is hockey royalty in this city. His longtime friend and former teammate Kelly Buchberger led us through the tour. Not many teams would do this...let alone hours before a game.

I snapped a few pics:



The Bulin stall. Later he would make 27 saves in a 5-2 win over Minnesota.

Broncos F Brad Hoban wanted a pic in front of Ales Hemsky's stall. He was scratched with the flu.

Later that night the Oilers hooked us up with press box seating:




I have to run but more blogging later today....
