therefore i have a few questions, it would be really great to get more infos:

1) where should i sit? lower level? its something special for me to be able to go to a nhl game so the ~100$ are fine

2) how long before 7:00 pm should I be at the game?

3) is there a nice sports bar for fans to get into "game-mood" near the stadium?

thanks a lot !!

1. Personally I prefer sitting up stairs. I find watching from up their gives a much better angle to see what is happening all over the ice and see plays develop. The optimal set IMO is Section 201 row 1 seat 5 (which is the front row on the second level at center ice on the side be hind the benches).

2. Personally I like to get there around 6 (or an hour before the start time) this way I can go down and watch warm ups then after that there is a decent amount of time to walk around get food or drink and get to your seat with out much fuss.

3. As someone else said there is a Chickie's & Pete's at the Wells Fargo center though it is a bit pricey of course. Other than that I'm not aware of any places in that area.

Have fun!
