The moment of silence for team Lokomotiv of the Kontinental Hockey League was quickly replaced by Section 102’s rendition of the National Anthem filling the Danbury Ice Arena’s main rink.
As the infamous section finished the song and the clacking noise of hockey sticks being hit on the ice took over, it became official; the start of hockey season was in fact here. The Danbury Whalers don’t begin until Oct. 27, but last Saturday’s 2nd Annual Green and White game, was just another step in putting together a final team to take on Chris Firriolo’s New Jersey Outlaws on opening night.
