Hockey Night Is Back In Canada!


We’ve waited long enough, but hockey night is finally back in Canada. What better way to celebrate a good ol’ Canadian tradition than heading out to the arena, a bar or a friend’s house to catch the game!

Hockey Night in Canada is not just something that happens every once in awhile – It’s a way of life! It also happens to be the name of a staple media broadcast in our great northern country since 1931. It started as radio in its original run and eventually developed into a television broadcast from the early 50’s until present day. HNIC airs as a commentary segment to NHL hockey games across Canada and the United States. Currently hosted by Canadian favourites, Ron MacLean and Don Cherry, the pre and post-game coverage of the night’s games are always exciting, and sometimes, even controversial.

But of course, what really brings a country together is the sport itself! Whether you’re cheering for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens or Vancouver Canucks, it’s all for the love of hockey. Take the Vancouver Olympics in 2010: All of Canada celebrated as Nova Scotia-native Sidney Crosby snuck the puck in between the goalie pads of American goaltender Ryan Miller. I remember being at Dundas Square in Toronto right after the game ended. ‘O Canada’ was proudly sung, high-fives were given to everyone and flags were waving like no tomorrow. Truly a proud moment to be Canadian!

As the NHL season is off to start, let’s take a look at some of the great hockey shots taken from our Lomography community – show us yours in the comments also!
