I don't mind hockey, but in general I could take it or leave it. But when you get to sit on the glass, I turn into a die hard fan. It's a totally different experience - and a totally awesome one.
One of my father-in-law's co-workers gave him 4 tickets and Sam and I were lucky enough to get to go with Sam's brother Ben and his girlfriend Kalyn. Aside from the great view, another advantage to those seats is access to the club level. This is important because they have better food and cleaner bathrooms with no lines.
The downside of sitting so close: we got an up close view of Teemu Selanne getting his jaw broken. Ouch.
Here are a few photos of us soaking in the evening.
