Quick question - I have nice authentic jerseys and I have a crappy jersey I usually wear to MSG and Philly.. Is it safe to wear a nice jersey to the game Saturday? My brother had food thrown at him back at the igloo when he would get front row student rush tix for $20, but obviously much has changed in Pittsburgh

As long as you aren't being a jackass, you'll be fine.

heck, even if you ARE a jackass, you'll be fine. CEC crowds have to be the tamest on the NHL.

Anyone got 2 tickets in the lower bowl? Send me a PM

Looking for a gift for my Mom for her birthday and seems like this would be a good idea, eh?

Just want to thank you guys for being gratuitous hosts today.. Got a little embarrassed in the stands, my guys didn't really show up.. But Pens fans were very nice, helping take pictures any time we asked and helping us find our way around the arena.. Very appreciated, stay cool don't become Flyers or Rangers fans

I think (for the most part) Pittsburghers pride themselves on being nice and courteous to strangers. (well at least Pirates and Pen's fans, haha. I have heard some awful stories how Steelers fans act.)

For those in Phily (at sporting events) they pride themselves on being tough, and macho, and obnoxious.

I sat near many Philly fans over the years HERE IN PITTSBURGH, and many just look to start trouble.
Years ago a Pitt student worked for me and we were talking about this very thing. He just laughed as he said he had many Philly kids in his dorm, and knew what I was talking about.

He said that a kid on his floor, a huge Flyers fan, went to a Flyers/Pens game here in Pittsburgh. Later on, he asked him how it was, and how he was treated. His reply. "Everyone was nice. So nice. It was kind of disgusting. That's not what sports is all about."

I am generalizing, but from being here for quite a few years, the Devils and Isles, and their fans and posters here at HF few Pens' fans have much issue with. I get on well with you guys, always loved Classic Devil as a Mod, and though I do not venture onto other teams boards, well ever basically, have a couple of times on your board and the Isle board and had intelligent respectful conversations. I would bet dimes to dollars if you had a poll regarding feelings about the teams and fan bases in our division there would be two distinct tiers, Isles and Devils in one and Rangers and Flyers in the other. Though Philly may deserve it's own tier all by itself. I only wish that your team had not owned us as it had over the years. Today's results were the exception rather than the rule. The Devils almost always give the Pens fits.

They're pretty much in the center of the section so in between.

Yeah they're good seats, most of the seats in Consol are pretty good (I personally prefer the Upper Deck, but that's just me). Seats 3,4 would be slightly better off since you're slightly closer to center ice, but they're still really good so I wouldn't worry bout it.

Thanks, I don't mind upper bowl, but it's my first NHL game, so I figured I might as well get close.

I'm looking to sell my pair to tonight's game vs. the Lighting. These are lower bowl, corner endzone seats at the end where the Pens attack twice. Second to the last row, with an aisle four seats to the right and an aisle six seats to the left (in other words, you never have to get up to let people pass).

Section 109. I'm selling them at the season tickethold price of $192 cash for the pair.

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for either 2 or 3 seats for the 3/16 game vs. the Rangers as I'll be in town and have yet to see CEC. The ticket exchange prices I'm seeing are a bit on the high side and I was hoping someone here has something they could offer me. Please PM me if you have something. Thanks.

^^ Funny. I also just found out I'll be in Pittsburgh that weekend on business. Looking for a pair to the 3/16 Rangers game.

Sooooo, if anyone has a pair of tickets they are willing to get rid of for a reasonable price (preferably below $100 each), and don't mind a couple of very knowledgeable and respectful Rangers fans sitting in their seats, please let me know!

haha I'm probably out to lunch asking for tickets here but it's worth a shot! Either way, a bit of information on the best way to obtain reasonably priced tickets would be much appreciated! Prices on ticket exchange/stubhub for a pair start out around $120/ticket. Is that normal?? Should I expect those prices to drop any closer to the game date? Are there a lot of scalpers out front on game day?? Late release box office tickets?

Depends on where the seats are. For a Saturday night game against a division rival $120 per ticket is very reasonable/bordering on a steal on the secondary market if they're in the lower bowl. Even for the upper bowl you probably won't find them much cheaper unless someone is desperate to sell. If you wait until closer to game day you might get a better deal but the cheaper tickets may be gone, so it's really a crap shoot.

I'd avoid the scalpers, but that's just me. It's too easy to get cheated since STHs have the ability to print out their tickets and it renders their hard copy tickets void. I see the same scalpers outside the arena all the time so they're probably legit, but if they were sold voided tickets they wouldn't know it and you're probably not going to have a leg to stand on with the box office if you've bought from scalpers.

Keep in mind, that is the same day as the St Patty's day parade, which starts about 10a...and the drinking starts about 7a. People love hitting the parade, then an afternoon game. I'm sure that, coupled with it being a weekend game, is why prices are higher than normal.

Prices should drop...if seats aren't moving, people are going to lower their asking price. But you run the risk of getting shutout.

For upper level seats, I pay $40 a ticket as part of my STH partial season. I can typically get about $80 for those through ticket exchange. For premium games, I normally get $100+

OMG, I forgot the parade was that day. They played on the day of the St. Patty's day parade either last year or the year before and getting there was such a nightmare we almost turned around & went home and ate the cost of the tickets.

Yeah. I get the appeal for the parade idiots. But for people who want nothing to do with the parade, an afternoon game is awful.

I would strongly recommend it. In addition to the masses of drunks crossing/falling into the street and the traffic it's also tough to find parking. I think we're going to park in Station Square this year & take the T or walk across the river.
