Pay Up for Prime Seats

If you’re a diehard hockey fan, chances are you have the NHL schedule posted on your fridge. If you’re dying to go to a game, it helps to plan months in advance. NHL matches between known foes, like the Devils and Flyers, are going to sell out faster, and any leftover tickets are going to be pricey. For cheaper tickets, opt for non-playoff times—unless, of course, it’s your favorite NHL team playing!

Pick a Quieter Spot

The same game-schedule rules apply to where you’re going to see your favorite team play. Games at popular NHL arenas like TD Garden in Boston, and even Nationwide Arena in Columbus may draw heavy crowds due to their location in major metropolitan areas. If you’re within an area like the Northeast with several NHL stadiums around, pick one in a smaller town and you may be able to save money. The bigger the venue—think Madison Square Garden and Staples Center—the more likely it’ll be a Mecca for hardcore hockey fans.
