How many pucks could you guide into the net from center ice inside the blue line? Some of these guys make it look tough.
Contestants chosen from a pool of entries participated in the 97.1 The Ticket Score-O at Joe Louis Arena. The game of skill involved shooting ten pucks into a wide slot in front of the net. The winner received tickets to see the Detroit Red Wings in round one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Some of these guys make it look very easy and others are having a really tough time. We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume the pressure got to them or they have never shot a puck on ice before. Tip number one should be: Guide the puck in nice and easy. A slapshot is probably not the best technique. Bouncing pucks wouldn’t stand a chance.
Congratulations to Joel H. of Whitmore Lake. He was the only contestant to get 10 out of 10 into the net. Well done sir. Enjoy the game!
