ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A small earthquake occurred Thursday night during the first intermission of Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal between the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks.
The quake, measured at 4.0 by the U.S. Geological Survey, didn't rattle the Honda Center crowd much and didn’t affect play -- it took place during the first intermission. The tremor was centered in an area two miles northeast of nearby Yorba Linda.
The adjacent Chino Hills was an active area Thursday as a 3.8 magnitude quake also occurred at 4:56 p.m. PT.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
