Row A is the first row in sections in the corners and behind the net. Sections inbetween the goal lines (101-104, and 114-118) have an extra row (AA) added. Sections behind the benches or penalty box (102X, 115, 116, 117) start with row B, with the exception of the far aisle seats in sections 115 and 117, which go to row AA.

Personally, I would steer clear of the 100s below row F in the center, and altogether in the corners or ends. For a building with the best sightlines in the league, the 100s sections have dreadful ones. Reason being that while most rinks have the first row about 1/2 way up the boards (like the PruCenter) the first row of the coliseum is at ice level, which is just awful.

Can't speak for the latter 2, Alfredo's is decent but not the same as it used to be, depends on what kind of Italian dishes you like, for Pizza Raimo's in Plainview is the best,

Hey, I've been away most of the year, but I just got back for the holidays and am planning on going to a game next week. Does anyone know if Loudville is still around? I didn't see it on the Isles website, but I could sure use the $10 tickets.

I've got 3 tickets to tonight's game. Unfortunately I'm family of 4. My youngest is 4. Would I need to get a ticket for her? She could probably just sit on my lap? Or will I have to buy an el cheapo ticket to get her in the building?

Hey guys, probably going to the game tomorrow with the g/f and we want to get something to eat before hand. Any recommendations? Is Doolin's any good?

I'd go to Borrelli's before the game or Milller's Ale House. If you want Italian, Borrelli's is right on the corner of Merrick Ave and Hempstead Turnpike. Miller's is futher down the turnpike in Levittown.

Doolins I would avoid and I dont think they even do the food/seating anymore.

Wanna hit a nice Italian place (family style)? www.piccolabussolarestaurant.com

Ive been going here for well over a decade and its probably one of the best family style Italian joints on the island. For the most part, both locations are the same but theres a few dishes each one cooks alittle different. Reasonably priced as well.

How early do you think someone would have to get the 15$ student tickets for Devils-Islanders on the 23rd? Also, are they strict with ID's? like if a friend graduated a year ago from college will he have a problem?

If your college ID doesn't have a year on it you do not have to worry at all.

I don't know if the Isles/Devils game will be any different but when I went to the Philly game last week people were still getting the Loudville tickets 20 minutes before the game. Of course the earlier you get it the better the seats.

Hey guys, got a question about some of your sections, I couldn't find anything on the Isles page, figured you'd might know. Is there anything different/special about the sections with an X at the end? Like 226X for example, I noticed a few tix on StubHub for pretty cheap compared to the surrounded sections. They're all very small sections - just want to make sure these aren't like handicapped sections or family zones or something like that.

Thanks!

I've done the train/taxi combo from NYC before, but this time I'm driving.

My tickets came with a parking pass to the "BREAKAWAY Lot", and I'm wondering if that's a good thing that I should bother searching out, or is it a gimmick and I should just park in any lot?

Thanks!

The sections marked with an X just mean theyre temporary stands and can be removed and stored if need be. There is nothing different about them for a hockey setup, so if the price is good dont hesitate.

Its wonderful. Follow the directions on the pass and you park right at the door.

Seating/Rows in the Colisseum question...Help!

Hey guys. I was just have a quick question...I want to get seats on the glass for when the Habs come to town to make it up to my girlfriend since she got sick and couldn't come with me last time. I was gonna get seats in section 103, but I just have one question...what is the front row? A or AA? or is it something else?

Thank you.

I live on the glass, if you want to get tickets. AA is the front row.

103 is a great section, it is closer to mid ice, although last night against the Devils 103 and 104 got 8 shots the whole night. We were in 103 on Thursday against the Panthers and my wife got hit with a puck so you are in the action.

If you take 103 or 104, you get to see the Isles shoot twice, in 102 and 101 you get the visitor's shooting twice, do not get seats across the way as the player's benches impede the view. If you sit in AA, you need a jacket.

To be honest with you...the glass is actually one of the worst seats in NVMC. If you want them, there is an ebayer seller, who usually has glass seats for all games.

I would recommend a section like 203.

My aunt and uncle had season tickets in section 305 from 1972-73 until the early 90s, and my dad said they were some of the best seats he'd ever sat in. They aren't terribly expensive, either. Just thought I'd throw that out there!

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. I've sat on the glass at a game before, particularly when the Devils used to play at what is now Izod Center, and I know it isn't the greatest, but I think it's more of the experience itself type of thing. She was gonna come with me to the Habs @ Devils game last Friday to which I had amazing seats similar to section 203 of the NVMC, and she was so crushed when she had the stomach virus the day of and couldn't go. I just think it'd be cool to show her tickets on Valentines Day and say they're front row.

Worst case scenario, would it be hard to move back to 203 or around there? It's a Tuesday night game, so it may not be packed.

Also, where do you guys recommend I get these tickets? I was looking at Stubhub.

I'd go with Stubhub, and I personally like the "on the glass" experience all though there are obstructed views.

The glass seats are cool, even if you can't see anything half the time. Just the experience is cool.

Can anyone tell me where to go to see the visiting players leave after the game and maybe get a few autographs?

Also, will I be able to take public transit from Northern New Jersey? I can get a train to Penn Station very easily, I'm just worried I won't be able to get back or something. Do trains even run til like 11 on a weeknight? How reliable is getting a cab out of the NVMC after the game to the train station? Will there not be one if I wait around to get autographs?
