I'll bet you a cool $100 that most of the "fans" in the lower bowl couldn't name 10 Leaf players if their lives depended on it. Every one of them could name each of the 17 different types of sushi sold in the platinum club though.
Start of first period, as in 2 or 3 minutes or until the first whistle.

While casual fans are no unusual sight at any NHL arena and many lower bowl seats are used to 'wine and dine' corporate clients, it is both silly and ignorant to assume the majority of folks do not know anything about the game or team. Most of the individuals in those seats are at the game because they want to be there, because they are hockey fans, because they are Leaf fans. Wearing a suit instead of a team sweater and not jumping up and down like a 5-year-old doesn't make many of them any less of a fan.

3/4 of the way and only if the game is out of reach.

People have trains to catch and traffic to beat.
