I've been to 9 games this year, the bulk of which I've sat in section 400, 417 or 433. You don't miss anything, though the crowd is a little sedate up there. I imagine for the play offs that isn't a problem though.



This is the view from 417 J and it really sells the view short. I dreaded sitting up there the first time, but almost don't bother with lower bowl seats anymore unless it's Philly/Pitt or the seats are a good deal. It really speaks to how well designed the Phone Booth really is.

I made the mistake of sitting behind the glass twice this year, once in DC and once in Raleigh and now every time I buy a nosebleed ticket I die a little inside. It's like 1st class versus coach, but it's not that bad I suppose.

I've never sat on the glass, but I sat in 101 for the Flyers game we won this season. Obviously the first and third periods were awesome, but the second was absolutely brutal. I'd love to make it out to a playoff game and sit in the nosebleeds this year.

Just be careful while navigating the stairs up there. Those suckers are steep. One game I watched up there I lost my balance for a second while going to take a piss and I thought I was going to roll my *** down a set of those stairs for sure. I won't go up there again after that.

I think you will have enough trouble simply landing a ticket to complain about the view...

They're not too bad on stubhub, please don't buy a thousand dollar ticket for Game 7 of the SCF just yet though, can't believe somebody would actually buy that.

I'm fortunate enough to have 3rd row seats behind the net we shoot on twice .... it's a different experience entirely. To answer your question directly, the upper tier seats are still great, good vision of the entire rink and you don't have to use the jumbo-tron as I occasionally do. That said, I wouldn't trade my seats for anything.

The answer in general to buying a ticket on spec is that it depends on how you purchase the ticket. Check the detailed rules of the site for what you do or do not get back in terms of the ticket cost, but also the service fees/charges, etc.

Of course, as it relates to a game #2, there would be a game #2 for both the home and away team since all NHL playoff rounds are best of 7 series. Playoff tickets are typically labeled by home game # rather than the game in the actual series...e.g., Rd 1 home game 2 or home game b.

I've sat in the non-nosebleeds a total of three times in my life. Once was this year in Nassau, where our 1st row (wouldn't really call them on the glass because we were behind the photographers) tickets cost less than a 400-level ticket in the Verizon Center. Another time was when the Capitals were terrible and they weren't selling out, and we were lucky enough to be "promoted" to the lower bowl. Dang rich folk and your expensive lower bowl tickets.

For the record, I love the view from on-top. Get to see plays develop and get a better feel for what's going on. Certainly a very different experience from being close to the ice.
