Great place to watch hockey for sure! Not bad for concerts or other events, clean restrooms and lots of places to get food or drink!

We had tickets for a penguins game. Even though our tickets were located the last row, we could still see the game perfectly fine. The seats are comfortable and the ushers are friendly. It is an electric atmosphere for a hockey game.

Typical hockey/entertainment venue. Nothing special about the building like there was with The Igloo. Be prepared to drop $100 or more total per person for any event here.

Sound was great. Stadium seats aren't the most comfortable but most seats have a good view of the show. There are some seats, however, slightly behind the stage. Watch out for those. Not sure why anyone would sit there unless all you wanted to see...More

The ONLY downside to this arena are the ushers. During hockey games, they actually will try and quiet you down. I can understand if the patron is acting belligerent and using profanity, but just yelling and screaming and cheering should not be discouraged at a...More

Wow what fun!! As others have already stated there is parking all around the area for various fees. I usually try to go early by several hours to park in the parking garage across the bridge (usually $12-15 event rate) and... More

if you can find a spot along the streets close to the arena then you are good to go, garages are close but cost cash. The parking lot across from the arena doesn't open till about 2 hours before puck drop.
