the 2nd one is in Erie, PA. the benches were kind of like a dugout. you had to step UP to get on the ice.

Played at the one in erie as well. The ice was not your standard size and stepping up onto the ice was weird as well. Played there once and hated it. Forget the name but its where Penn State Behrend played.

I played there a few times in college vs. Pitt-Johnstown. Slapshot was filmed there, the step down from the tunnel/concourse to the ice was like 2 feet, and they had a pimp working the scoreboard and penalty box doors each time we played.
Hated playing here as well. The step down sucked, it seemed like the ice would never freeze right so the ice was always ******, and always hated playing goalie in an arena filled with empty dark seats. Once the puck goes up above the boards and in the line of the seats, you lose the puck every tiem
