I forgot about the Family 4-Pack, would be a good day to do it.

President's Day has a lot of schools off, and some companies, but a lot of people still work on that day so it will be a tough draw.

The Youth Hockey $15 offer for the Tampa game will take help move a lot of the upper deck seats.
Have they announced College Nights yet?

I'm still stunned the Isles game was a sellout, on a weekday usually they're a terrible draw. I know they had giveaways and super discounts but they always seem to have that for Devil-Isle games anyway. I guess people really are making up for lost time/games.

It was a pretty full crowd as well. Can't even point to a section that had a large amount of seats open.

I wonder how much word gets out about these discounts though. I sent it to a few friends but if they aren't on here (or a real part of the discount) how would they know?

Most fans in the arena are not aware of the promos.
You would be surprised how many people pay box office price.

But, our fanbase if very young overall, and the Devils social media campaign the last few seasons is working in regards to filling the building.

DSA's team also, because they seem to know which games could use the promo offers and which games do not.

***The Rags and Pittsburgh games are not sold out yet BTW. They will be sold out and I think that is the message the Devils are conveying on their website.
But if you go to the TM interactive seating map for both games (especially vs Pitt), you will see quite a few unsold seats that are still available for purchase.

Our home crowds have been in playoff mode all three games so far.
A little more subdued vs NYI.

There is a decent chance to sellout the TBL game.
These things will help.

1. Fans spread the word about the Youth Hockey promo offer (posted in the Ticket thread and I'll post it again here below), $15 upper level is very affordable. Apparantly it will also be a College Night game.
2. Devils win their next 3 games or at least 2 out of 3, and especially vs NYR.
3. Clear weather forecast (no snow), and the forecast now looks good for next Thursday

TBL has a scary good forward corps, the game will be uptempo and exciting to watch and be at.

Devils vs TB, Thursday Feb 7, 7pm @ The Rock

www.newjerseydevils.com/youthhockey
code: devils

Upper (200) level tix, $15 each
100 level tix, $25 each
Lower level tix, $40 each

Hopefully it's not like last year's TBL game on a Sunday morning where St. Louis had a hattrick. That was probably THE worst game I've ever been to at the Rock. Well, at least of the ones I allow myself to remember :p

Might pick up those $15, depends if I can afford it time-wise not $$$ wise!

The Marriott Hotel is open on the corner of Broad and Lafayette.
A Joe's Crab Shack restaurant is due to open this spring/summer on the ground floor of it.

Stadium Sports Bar & Grill re-opened a few weeks ago, they are on Mulberry & Cottage Streets, near the parking lots over there.

Bad news is Uber Burger and Arena Lounge have both closed.
Though, Uber Burger-or some other burger joint, should re-open at some point this year.

Just a bump to this ticket offer for Thursday night vs TB.
A busy week at The Rock, tix still available for Sat afternoon vs Pittsburgh too.

Awesome. I used to go to this place all the time for cheap beer while waiting for selyar's always delayed flights from memphis to get in... Not the best place to be until 2 AM but for a couple hours after the game it's not a bad spot.

Received an email about the Kids Vouchers incentive for STHs that also noted that tickets to games 7-24 will be mailed and received this week.

Me too. Interesting that they still won't tell us which games, but they must know, since apparently the 6 games are printed on the vouchers which are being mailed this week along with our tickets. I wonder if they're splitting up the games and we'll all get a different selection to chose from.

For those who did the "photo on the ice" thing, were there any people who went up alone? I only have the single seat and go to games solo. I don't want to look like some loser

I didn't see anyone go as a single, but the line is moving so fast nobody is watching anyone else.

Is Stadium still being owned and run by the same people? We liked them and we'll definitely start going back if it's the same people.

Maybe because we have three home games this week, but there are LOTS of tickets remaining for the TB game, I just checked the TM map.
Almost entire sections in the 200 level ($15 for this game with the above offer).

$15 to get in to an NHL game is very reasonable, I don't want to hear anyone talk about getting priced out of the building, at least for one night.

Yes, I have heard it's the same family.
Go check them out next game.

Any non-STH going to Saturday's game want to be captured for posterity on the ice with a few strangers?

I saw a few singles. I don't think you'll look like a loser at all.

Being content to enjoy your own company is a sign of mental health and good self-esteem. Get your solo picture taken and look down on the other losers who can't stand to be alone.

For the photo on ice thing, where do you go to take part in it? I'm going to the home game on Thursday night and was considering convincing my friends to do it and does anyone know how much the photos are afterwards?

Thanks much!

It's a STH event and you have to sign up for it and you have waivers you have to sign.
