"Center Ice in the Upper Level"

Seat Review From Section 301, Row K, Seats 7-8
Jan 2016

Comments

With these seats there was a lot of good and a lot of bad. First off, the good: these seats were perfectly at center ice. You could see end to end without straining your neck - just a small turn of the head and you can see breakouts with no issues. In fact, my girlfriend - who hasn't been to a hockey game with me in four years - said that she really enjoys live hockey and how easy it was to follow. I think these seats made it so much easier for her to see.

What I didn't like was the steepness of the upper level. I thought being in row K - which is 8 rows up the stairs - wasn't going to be that bad - but walking up those 8 rows is a pain. In fact, I decided not to drink this night because I didn't want the hassle of carrying beers up the stairs and the hassle of walking down to go to the bathroom. If I had aisle seats I probably would have gone for it.

In almost any seat you won't be able to see something. In our case, it was the battles on the boards closest to us. It was a little annoying at first, but the beautiful jumbotron really helped in those circumstances. By the second period I was really adept at checking the videoboard for those scrums and then focusing back on the ice when the puck was free.

Overall, solid seats for seeing everything on the ice. A little inconvenient at times, but definitely recommended for seasoned and amateur hockey fans.

Best for... watching the game

Avoid if... you consider yourself "Big and Tall", climbing stairs is difficult

    • "Great seats for the price "

      (Section 318) - -

      Sat in row A which is the first row of the section. The lighting only attack once but you still get a good view of the other end. You can also put your feet up if you are in row A. Probably not good if you are afraid of heights, however.

    • "Tight squeeze in front of the press box"

      (Section 318) - -

      This row has NO leg room. My husband was in 318 M seat 4 and had to sit sideways the whole time because he was too tall to fit his legs between the tiny gap of leg room. I was in seat 1 and the stair railing was a real distraction from my view. The only thing I did like about the seats was that they...
