About the Seats
From just inside the blue line, we had very good views of the near net where the Hawks attack during the 1st and 3rd periods. Unfortunately the Hawks scored their lone goal of the game during the second period (at the far net), but we still had a decent view of that tally which brought Kane's point streak to 20 games.
I'm a big fan of being on the aisle as it makes for a much more comfortable experience knowing how quickly we can get to and from the seats for trips to the restrooms (the additional legroom is a great perk as well). Thankfully we were on the right aisle in our row, so with the majority of the ice to our left we rarely had our views blocked by fans walking up and down the aisle.
The roaming beer vendors were nowhere to be found during the first period, but made multiple appearances during the second and third periods. Since we had grabbed the first round and some food prior to puck drop, we were well covered in the refreshment department, and rarely had to leave the seats (only for restroom runs).
Hawks tickets can be pretty expensive, but for what we paid, the seats were a very strong value thanks to being on the aisle and good proximity to the net where the Hawks shoot twice. I would have preferred to be on the opposite side (Section 319) where we could have a head on view of the benches, but it was still a great experience....More
