Another hockey season is here and that’s exciting, but never so thrilling as when I was a kid. I remember staying up late in Ontario to watch Los Angeles play Vancouver in their 1970 season opener — the Canucks’ first ever.

The audio for that game is now on the internet, as is video of the Canucks’ inaugural goal. I have very few feelings for either, but when they actually occurred I was over the moon.
