What a moment! Marc Smith snapped this photo after Brett Howden scored the opening goal of Moose Jaw's 3-2 overtime win on Saturday night. What makes this photo so special? In the crowd to the right of Brett are his Mom, Dad, Sister, and Brother (Former Moose Jaw Warrior Quinton Howden)
Hockey is a sport filled with early mornings, late nights, kilometers upon kilometers of traveling, skate sharpenings, injuries, cheers and tears. At times it can pull families in multiple directions when Johnny has a game here at the same time that Sally has a practice there. All the chaos that hockey can cause is made worth it in moments like this.
I'm guessing that if you asked the Howdens, they'd say all the hours, all the travelling, all the chaos was worth it in moments like this, when hockey still brings their family together.
Hats off to our sports guy Marc Smith for capturing this moment.
Game 3 and 4 for the Warriors are Tuesday and Wednesday night in P.A. and tickets for game 5 (Sat night) are on-sale now.
