If you go- bundle the hell up lol. I'm not so bummed anymore I don't have tickets after reading this: http://www.nj.com/we..._long_haul.html

 

Looks like it will be in the 20's which is still better than the single digits we had with the polar vortex from last week.

 

Still though that's cold.  Alcohol may make you feel warmer for a few minutes but in a long run it actually makes you colder.  Just remember that:)

Hot chocolate, hot chocolate, and more hot chocolate.  As much as I like beers when I go to football and baseball games (not as much during hockey, mostly because there's no real tailgating), I think I'd just down hot chocolates, one after another, if I was going to this game. 

 

I wonder how many fans will say "screw it", and go inside.  I'm assuming the restaurant will be open?

I was actually hoping to take a thermos of hot chocolate in, but according to the little pamphlet I got with my souvenir tickets it was kinda vague where if I remember right one section said it was ok and another section said it was not allowed in.  I will have go to home and re-read it.

 

Otherwise I will be buying a ton of cups of it at the park for probably $4-5 a pop.

Hope you can bring the thermos...kind of amazed they'd allow one in anywhere.

They allow other containers during Yankee games and they have let me and my gf in with waterbottles so it's not that far fetched.

 

The Rock is by far the most stringent arena/stadium I have been to in the last 5 years when it comes to bringing outside stuff in.

I'm curious how the Devils are doing regarding the allotment of tickets they've received. Are they selling well?

If you judge by what's left on stubhub, I think they're doing very well.  Cheapest ticket is $119 right now.  I'm not sure how it all compares to face value, but I've found that, as a rule, regardless of the venue, once hockey tickets on stubhub reach $50-75 minimum, it means you have a sell-out.

I heard they expect 7k empty seats and 10k for Isles game but prices of tickets haven't crumpled yet. Can't verify if this is true.

Just from the Devils side? That means about 18k Devils fans from the 25k or tix they were allotted

There is a rumor going around that the NHL sent out a memo stating for the devils game to expect possibly up to 8000 empty seats and for the islanders game expect up to 16000 empty seats. Doesn't mean unsold just no-shows.

I wouldn't rule out the possibility given the amount of tickets available on stubhub along with other secondary market sites and what the devils held back to sell season tickets with.

if those figures are true we're not seeing a stadium series here for a long long time.

 

16k empties for the Isles game would be a disaster

Another reason why I am going lol. Devils will never ever be in a winter classic and I doubt after this they would do another stadium series game with the devils in it for a very long time.

This is what they get for having two games in a week, the second of them on a weeknight and the first of them not exactly in the 'home' team's area.

Good point...I've sort of been vacilating on going for a long time but between that, the event itself and the semi-mild weather expected (low 30's but no snow) I'm dragging myself to go.

If you have 4000 empties in Yankee Stadium, that's respectable enough.

Just for comparison sake, I took a look on Stubhub at the LA/Ana game, and there are about 1500 fewer tix available, although the cheapest start at about the same as Devils Rangers. (As of now, there are something like 4500 tix available on Stubhub for Devils Rangers starting at $120).

Even though it's not until March 1, the number available and prices for the Pens Hawks game are basically the same as Devils Rangers.

The Isles/Ranger game might not be pretty. Something like 8000 tix available on Stubhub with the cheapest being $60.
