Leafing Las Vegas

A week ago Rose and I checked into the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for one night. We were on our way the next day to visit our daughter in Bellingham, WA, and Rose had never been to Vegas.  “What are you here for?” the well-trained receptionist asked.

The Canucks surged into Montreal after four-straight wins, and on Saturday played their best game of the year, dominating the Winnipeg Jets in a 4-1 victory in a place that had been like ...
