Thanks for the help guys. I'm planning on a trip to see the Pens on the 24th there at the Isle and then seeing them play the Devils in NJ on the 25th. If I stay closer to NJ (was looking at getting to either Jersey city or Secaucus late the 23rd) is it a relatively easy drive to the arena? Mapquest says about an hour, but is it an easy trip or should I just try to stay close and then go towards NJ on the 25th.
