I've taken the train to/from New Haven, not Hartford, but I can find out the details if nobody else has them... I live in Wethersfield (literally the town to the south of Hartford). I'm not sure about which hotels are nice or not but there are a bunch in downtown Hartford or in the surrounding areas. There is a restaurant called City Steam Brewery a block or so from the arena that's good. There are also other bars/restaurants in the surrounding street of the XL Center. Let me know if you're coming up, even though I don't know you, maybe I'll meet you for some beers and the game... I'm always up for beer and hockey. Ha Ha
i was once again really disappointed when the ahl schedule was released... i work for the cavs/lake erie monsters and i really wanted to see the whalepack down here at the q. while i understand why the ahl is a bus league, i really hate it. i wish there was more play out of the conference.
bummer.. at least i can catch the rangers down in columbus this year.
