Keep That Olympic Spirit with a National Hockey League Game in Canada
February 24, 2014 at 7:28 AM
The Monday after the Olympics is kind of bummer, and that’s especially the case for those who have been hooked on the sporting events—even with the tape delay—for the last couple of weeks. Thankfully ice hockey has some neat stuff to look forward to, as the National Hockey League is continuing their series of interesting events through the upcoming weekend.
For those that want to continue the celebration of Team Canada and their gold medal win in men’s ice hockey—and women’s ice hockey for that matter—the fun takes place on Sunday, March 2 in Vancouver. This is when the 2014 NHL Heritage Classic does its thing at BC Place, as the Ottawa Senators take on the Vancouver Canucks. The game is played in Vancouver at the home of the area’s Canadian Football League team. Things might even be played outdoors like some of the other league events this year, as the hockey road trip has already included games at Dodger Stadium and Yankee Stadium.
Over the weekend tickets were still available directly from the folks over at Ticketmaster; however, they seem to have disappeared. We’ll keep checking to see if things become available through the official source, but of course there’s always websites like StubHub offering up alternatives.
On some of the resale sites we’ve seen options for a little less than $90 per ticket, and there are choices at both the upper levels and lower levels. Just keep in mind that the stadium was hardly designed for hockey, and that the rink is in the middle of the playing field. The views are probably not going to be the best, but we can only imagine that you’re kind of going for the experience. The resale tickets seem to actually be a similar deal to those options through the official source, so you do not have to worry about breaking the bank.
So grab a Molson or Labatt and head up north this weekend, as the finale to the NHL’s Stadium Series is not to be missed.
