My first Canucks memory (or, at least, the one that sticks with me today) is the first Canucks game I attended with my Dad. February 4, 1987 at the Pacific Coliseum. The Canucks beat the New York Islanders 4-1.
I am pretty sure Tony Tanti scored for the Canucks but I can't remember who scored any of the other goals in the game, though. I remember Frank Caprice and Billy Smith being the goalies.
I was only just coming up on 7 years of age, and it solidified my love for hockey. My Dad got us tickets that had us sitting in row 2, just behind the blue line in the Canucks home end. It was incredible! My Dad even got one of the Canucks players to fire us a puck over in warm-up.
