NHL Travels Overseas 5th Time To Start 2011-12 Season

The NHL will be playing in 4 regular season games in three European capitals, Berlin, Stockholm, and Helsinki to begin the 2011-12 season.  The NHL games will feature the New York Rangers, Los Angels Kings, Anaheim Ducks, and Buffalo Sabres.  These games will take place October 7-8.  It will start with the Ducks taking on the Sabres Friday October 7 at the Harwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland and the Rangers and Kings at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.  On Saturday, Octbober 8, the Sabres and Kings play at the O2 World Arena in Berlin, Germany and the Rangers vs. Ducks in Stockholm.  In addition to the NHL games, the Ducks will face off in a special exhibition game against the Jokerit hockey club of the SM-Liiga. If you’re thinking about going to any of these games, I recommend you look for tickets ahead of time.  I tried to see a Jokerit game back in 2004 and it was sold out.  Not one person was scalping tickets so we didn’t have any luck getting into that game. Tickets for the two games in Stockholm will be on sale starting Thursday, April 14. More information on tickets is available here: Tickets for the game in Berlin will go on sale Friday, April 15.
