Tonight was my first opportunity to cover a Canucks game.
It was an away game against the Minnesota Wild, and because of my class schedule, I had to write my recap solely off of the box score.
It may not be spectacular, in fact it isn’t. But for a pageant-gal like me, I am still shocked that I am able to write about short-handed goals and five-minute majors as though I’ve spent my life at the rink.
I am proud to report that I have approximately 7 hockey terms in my sport vocabulary, and that I can successfully interpret hockey stats.
Writing for the Eagles was my first personal point, and covering the Canucks is my second. All I need is to pursue a third opportunity that is completely out of my comfort zone, and then they’ll be callin’ me Hat Trick Hayles…
And be sure to check out my lovely game recap at Vancity Sports Blog.
