Default Attending NHL games on the road

Does anyone have suggestions or share experiences on attending NHL games in other arenas such as obtaining tickets, parking, lodging and any other tips to help first timers attend a game in a new city?

I was considering a trip to Sunrise before this season is over.
Next season perhaps Atlanta.

GP, absolutely.

A good tip, is to obtain the seats before you go obviously. I know a few guys who tried to go and planned on buying scalped..but had bad luck.

One thing to consider is making sure you check both Ticketmaster AND Stubhub. You may find better deals on Stubhub.

Hotels, in Sunrise. I would focus on trying to find something that suits your price range, within a decent distance (10-15 miles). Reason being, parking in Sunrise, is free, at least everytime I've gone to a game. Since that's the case, I advise just finding a hotel deal that best suits your budget requirements.

In Atlanta, you want a hotel that is within quick walking distance to a Marta Station (public transit), as they have a stop RIGHT at Phillips arena. Parking there, can be costly, and it's much cheaper to take the train.

Once in the actual arena, don't hesitate to ask the ushers for guidance. Most of the time, they are really friendly. Even if you're wearing Lightning gear. One thing you gotta make sure you do though, is go down for warmups. It's a fun experience!

Also in Sunrise, the hot dogs are completely hit or miss. They either rock, or they taste like processed rubber.

Hope this stuff helps!

I bought my tickets for yesterday's and Saturday's game through stubhub. I've gotten good deals on them. In Anaheim and San Jose, I got tickets through ticketmaster (not a fan of theirs)
