If you love the team that much, going to a game alone isn't a big deal. In 2006 I went to Game 2 of the Devils-Rangers series by myself. I ended up next to a guy and his son. Chatted with them the whole game and just made myself tone down the cursing for the kid. Had a great time. Of course, the fact that the Devils won was probably the greatest factor in my enjoyment, not who I was or wasn't with. :)


Now you'd have booed the damn kid on principle :P

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

yup, i do it. I used to get a pair of season seats but ended up going alone alot of the time anyway so it just didn't make sense to buy the 2nd seat anymore. I know enough people where I can almost always find a buddy to sit with or near. Tried to meet up with CRASHER last game but ran into some old buddies on a smoke break so we stayed put.

Next season i bought a seat downstairs in 5 but again, i'm sure i'll find my way around the arena as i usually do!

You can buy 2 tix and advertise on craigs list.

Oops, thought you were a Pens fan.

Go. You might get stuck sitting next to people who aren't sociable (which would suck) but might be sitting next to great people. Either way you are in the building.

I've gone alone when my boyfriend bailed on me to go to a Rags game (gag) I just butted into conversations around me hehe It may also help that i'm a young female though with people feeling bad and talking to me idk.

I had a blast that game, and no annoying Rangers fan bf (who has devils season tickets...long story) to not cheer when the devils score.

So I sat just behind Marty's left shoulder 19 rows from the glass. Awesome view of the goal tending clinic and DC's tip in. I think the whole arena stood for the last minute of the period. I couldn't even sit during both time outs. Games like that are proof if everyone bails you still go.

Period one with DC's goalie interference + Marty getting completely taken out + Marty given a penalty, I seriously thought they were gonna have to call in the National Guard. The crowd was LIVID.

My heart was pounding with each PK.

Then watching the clock while realizing Marty need a 'that which I couldn't say' to win.

The ticket paid for itself.

Sadly there are way too many Devils fan girls that have wasted resources with Ranger fans out there :P

I go to games if I cant find someone to go with or if I get a runaround from friends. Screw it I'll just go and if something great happens, I'll just keep talking on how great it was to be there in person.

Except for the fact almost everyone that do either prefers to go by themselves or does it solely as a last resort.
