Well it didn't snow here yesterday, so that's all from the ice.

So unless I'm missing something, wouldn't that guarantee that the stadium would only be half full for each set of games? I would have rather had cheaper tickets for each game and then buy two sets if you're interested in both. Although I suppose it might be a bit optimistic to think they could have sold 100,000 tickets between the two games...
That's how these events always work. Look at the NCAA Tournament or conference tournaments. They're always sold in 2 game sessions. Logistically, it'd be a nightmare for them to try to empty the stadium and then allow new fans to enter. You would need at minimum a 4 hour gap between games, IMO.
