Post-season road trips with the boys are glorious. 5 guys cram into your ’02 Tahoe and head out on a roady down south looking for trouble. You end up pooling some funds together for the shittiest hotel room you can find to call a home base. $34 a night doesn’t get you much, but a twin bed and some floor space. The stories made from the nights at Hotel 9’er will be told for years at the hockey house.
