I didn't sit in my seats, but I sat in row 15 of 208 or 207 and it was fine. You could see 95% of the scoreboard and bridges weren't an issue.

So i'm curious about concourses. How is the one closest to the Blue Seats? Also, how easy is it to get to the other concourses? What's the best place to get good food and craft beer?

Well, I wish I was in Row 5 because then I could stand the whole game...

That being written, in 220 I am must closer to the boards. Out in 222, I was pushed further back for two reasons:
1. The higher row number.
2. The shape of the bowl and rink results in the 222 seats being further back when compared to 220.

I actually like these seats better. For some reason, look THROUGH the net is more appealing to me than looking into the net.

I probably would NOT want to be on the goal line...

Attached is the hatchet view from 222. This is NOT the aisle seat... That one is worse...

Yeah, that's terrible. I'm in 221, just behind the goal line and I like the view from there. Being in Row 2 doesn't hurt either.

I skimmed the thread and didnt see anything. Has their been any info on the ice quality? MSG is known for its horrible ice, and I believe I read that changes were put into place to improve the quality. Was curious if it was truly better, or too early into the season to make that call.

Seemed like the puck was jumping around quite a bit tonight, although maybe that is just an excuse for the many whiffs the Rangers had.

Last night was the first game up in my new seats in the bar stools at the top of 223. I actually really enjoyed them. We have our own basic concession stand and bar up there, a little ledge to put your drink and phone on, and nobody can get in your way. Even if people stand infront of you, as long as you stand on the little railing around the stool you have a completely unobstructed view of the ice. Yes the scoreboard is completely blocked, but the auxiliary boards makes up for it nicely. Only minor complaint was the time left on penalties was small and tucked into the players on ice section, so it was hard to find at first. Oh yeah, and the game was terrible.

I'm in 413. I go up to the West Balcony for beer. For food, try going down one level using the stairs in either tower and looking behind sections 216-219. You can get to the main concourses behind the 200s - sides of the rink - the same way, but they are very crowded.

Are the bridges distracting at all?

They are in fact a great and unique feature.

Looks like you can order food and merchandise with the new Rangers app and pick it up. It's also pretty easy to access all your tickets within it for mobile entry.

The bridges arent a problem at all....that being said for a few bucks cheaper and an entire view of the crowd/arena and scoreboard I am glad I was able to move into the 400s a few years ago.. I still think blue seats row 1 and 2 are much much better than any of the upper 200s. Especially now that they put in all glass instead of railings like in the other parts of the arena.

Luckily I'm on the 31st street (media) side, so people aren't allowed to walk on that side. I really like the scoreboard displays on the bridge.

I was thinking of purchasing tickets in Section 222 Row 10 seats 8 & 9. Are there any issues with that location? Thanks.

Can people walk at all on that bridge or are they simply prevented from going near the media?

Cant go near media. There are food, bevrage & bathrooms up there which is great! No need to go to the lower concourse.

Ended up in 220 (closer to 219, in the 5 row portion). Yeah, more in the corner, but a much better view of all the action moving up and down the ice. And I don't need to go through a stinking portal to get to my seats.


That's my section (5 row section in 220). Love those seats!

Given all the talk of seat locations in this thread, maybe we should start a season ticket thread and the OP can list where people from HF are sitting on a regular basis. Would make for some good in between period beer meet ups.
