November 6, 2013, Victoria (ISN) – I decided to stay uptop in the media booth overlooking the ice Wednesday night during the battle between the Victoria Royals and the Edmonton Oil Kings just to see what I could catch from up there.

The Oil Kings shut the Royals out with a final score of 5-0. Some of the photos I took are self explanitory.
