I like the top of 105-7 in the UC or first row of 201/234. Similar for the ads. I go to 4-8 Aeros games and I sit high on the sides (lower level) or high behind where we shoot twice.

I've been a Washington Capitals fan since their second season in 1975-1976.

I have attended hundreds of games at both the Verizon Center and where they used to play at the Capital Center. I'd rather sit up high (but not too high) than down close. You can see the plays developing much better.

The last game I attended I sat behind the goal close to the rear in the lower bowl and I hated it. Never again. Looking through that net the entire game was annoying and when the action is at the other end of the rink it was hard to see.
Once at the Capital Center I had a 2nd row seat and I felt like I missed a good portion of the game.

Shoot for center ice first then expand out to the goal lines and do not sit too close. If you have to settle for closer to the goal line pay close attention to where your team shoots twice. Most if not all seating maps have that information listed now. Try and avoid sitting too far away as well.

I used to get seats behind the goalie and just to the left at the Nassau Coliseum but you couldn't see the other end of the ice. The best seats I had were at center ice, 8 rows up. It was just above the top of the glass...PERFECT!

I prefer seats behind the net but up high. I can see plays develop at both ends. And I also have a tendency to make saves when the shots are coming at me. It adds to the enjoyment - but not necessarily for those sitting next to me.

The only way I would accept that is in the front row. I have had that view before and it was good.
Behind the net where I sat on 1/17 was awful.

Center ice but not down close and not too far away is the best for me.

Second level, front row, center ice...

I had those seats for one of the Hawks final games at Chicago Stadium and they were the best seats ever! I assume regardless of the stadium, the quality of second level, front row, center ice, would carry over.

I should update, when I went to the Blackhawks v Redwings last year I didn't have much to choose from everything was pretty much sold out but ended up sitting Sec.325 Row 8 seats 9 & 10. It was high but also really nice to see the play setup and you could sniff out a bad line change way before other people could. It was tough to see the puck and the players looked a little slow compared when you sit up close. It was a great place to watch a hockey game and the anthem was unreal and the hair does stand up on the back of your neck when Jim cornelison belts it out. I got to chant Detroit Sucks and cheered through the whole anthem. I don't mind sitting behind the goalie but I think I will opt for 2nd level next time.

I have only been in the 100s once with NHL games. I prefer the 200s for the Jobbing.com Arena in Glendale or the 300s in the Nassau Coliseum. I normally sit either in the corners or behind the net. These seats are the best in my opinnion.

I will repeat, sorry. First row of the second deck.
