Is Section 217 at Amalie Arena considered "center ice"?

Specifically, seats 1 and 2.

In the 200 level at Amalie Arena, sections 201 and 216 span the red line and are considered center ice sections. These seats typically command top dollar for Lightning games.

Seat 1 in Section 217 is just a few seats away from dead center ice

Section 217 is just to the left of 216 and spans the blue line on the side of the ice where the opponents shoot twice. Seats 1 and 2 in the section are aisle seats closest to Section 216 and will be between the blue line and the red line. So while not exactly center ice, these are excellent seats for a hockey game.
