    Going to be there in Dec and a game is on for Sunday night, tickets on line cheapest $100 range. Should I wait till day of game and scoot over to arena for possible better/cheaper seat prices ? Just wondering if stadium offers this service, not sure if I would trust scalpers or Craig's list

    Chances are strong that the stadium ticket booth won't sell tickets for cheaper. You can look for cheaper tickets on StubHub or on http://www.ticketsnow.com/nhl/ which is TicketMaster's fan ticket exchange. For my hometown team I can get single game tickets for the cost of season tickets (but you'll also find somebody trying to turn a huge profit, so research ticket prices).

    I went to 2 games last year and bought single tickets on either stubhub and seatgeek, I don't exactly recall. I wait until 15-20 minutes before the opening faceoff and then the search begins. Bought great seats, one for face value, one slightly under face value when I purchased just after the game started. Just surfed on my phone outside of the arena.

    Time is your ally, sellers (and scalpers) do not want to be left with unsold tickets and get more aggressive closer to game time and very aggressive once the event starts. I plan to do the same thing next month see the Knights play the Capitals and Blackhawks.

    This is really good advice, I've never been to a hockey game and would like to check one out when I'm in town next month but the prices are prohibitive, especially for tix close to the ice. I may hang around the plaza that night and see if I can score a decent ticket this way.

    Honestly - T-Mobile arena is designed really well for hockey --- the views from the upper bowl are great. If you are a casual fan or not a hockey person, I would highly recommend the cheaper tickets - I wouldn't worry about paying more for a lower seat (though I might pay a tiny bit more to be behind the goal or on the sides rather than in the corner).

    The sightlines are good, I aim for the first 4-5 rows of the upper deck.

    Seats behind the goal in the second deck can be less expensive but a great sightline to follow the flow and passing up and down the ice. Naturally, half the time the play is going away from you but when coming at you it's really cool. Floor sections 1 and 2 and second level 101,102 and 120 are right behind the Vegas goalie during the 1st and 3rd periods. In addition, the drum corp and cheerleaders are right behind you at the top of the second tier sections. Reminded me of a playoff high school football game atmosphere sitting there. They also perform on the ice between periods, never saw anything like it a any hockey game before.

    I'm an olde time hockey guy but I have to admit it was fun sitting there. Even though it's the second year for the team, expect a lot of people sitting around you to be newbies as well. I spent a good amount of time explaining the game to quite a few people.

    That is a great view, Breeze. Cameras always make your view appear farther than what you're seeing in person.

    As for the discussion of seats close to ice vs up high. Being a long time hockey fan, I try to avoid seats close to the ice level. If you're low enough the reflections on the glass will make it so you can't see what is going on in the near corner on the opposite end of the ice you're sitting. I like to sit a bit higher so I can see everything all at once and I like to watch the play develop. Not too high for NHL teams though, about mid way between top and bottom.

    The Flyers scored 3 2nd Period goals on my end and I had great views of a very good game from Brian Elliott and very good Flyers’ back checking. In many ways it was the Flyers best game this season.

    It was about 10% Flyers fans (guesstimate) and the Knights fans were very friendly and gracious.

    Section 101, first row. One of the pics shows the drum corp behind us at the top of the section. Even though my team (Habs) lost that night, had a blast. Blue man group and Cirque du Soleil performed during the intermissions. Cool on ice opening to the game as well. Ordered seats on Stub hub a few weeks before the game because I knew I wanted to go for sure (I believe they were $170). A few nights later Calgary was in town, and I thought I'd check out Stub hub for the heck of it to see what prices would be just before game time. Our same seats were $60 (granted the Habs game was on a Saturday and the Calgary game was a week night). 20180217_155923_HDR.jpg 20180217_165525_HDR.jpg 20180217_161527.jpg
