The last time I took my kid to a game, she wanted to leave at the 2nd intermission.
Now she's asking again to go. Is it easy to get discounted tickets in front of the arena after the first period has started? She doesn't enjoy hockey but I think she just wants the experience to go to the arena. Is it safe buying from the scalpers outside?

Ive gotten tickets from scalpers a few times. Even traded in 2 for 1 once. Never had a bad experience & yea u will see the prices go down after puck drop. But you'll miss the light show and oh Canada! Maybe you can play on a scalpers soft heart and tell him your kids never seen a game.

Sometimes you can get a good deal. Ask outside on the bottom concourse for Ken or Big Mike. Both very reputable. I sell them my tickets when I can't use them and no friends or family don't want them. It doesn't happen often but these are the guys to deal with.

Where's the bottom concourse? Do you mean in front of the entrance to the Team Store? Or by the old Chevy pickup window?

I've bought tickets off a scalper once. Friend lost his ticket on the way down for the game so we needed a quick fix. Scalpers outside the Rog seem to be reputable, from my limited experience and from what I've heard. Although I don't have the first-hand experience to say so with absolute certainty.

Never had a problem with the scalpers by the skytrain entrance and near the ticket windows.

This is a pretty phenomenal idea. Tickets are way too expensive, but I'm willing to miss a period if you get a decent deal.

Dont know about vancouver (they always sell out) but in ottawa i would get tickets for almost half off during the middle of the game. These were nosebleed seats but for the experience it doesnt matter. Only did this twice so it could be a nobody game .
