If you’re looking for something unique to do in Newark this fall, our team at Value Van and Car Rental thinks you might like to attend a New Jersey Devils hockey game. You don’t have to be a huge hockey fan to enjoy the atmosphere and experience of a game. The New Jersey Devils play in the Prudential Center in Newark, making it a convenient trip for you and your family in your rental car. Here are some things to keep in mind if this will be your first hockey game experience.
Get There Early
Professional sporting events are popular, especially if you’re heading to the game on a Friday or Saturday night. We recommend you get to the arena at least an hour before the puck drops to make sure you’re able to avoid traffic and long lines. Once you’ve found your seat and secured your snacks, you can check out the pre-game skate and warmup that you rarely get to see on TV.
Honestly, for some, half the reason to attend a professional sporting event is for the concessions. We all know they aren’t cheap, but this is a great time to splurge on foods you might not get elsewhere. Do some research online to see if the stadium has a signature food or drink, and try them out! While expensive, it’s worth it as it’s all part of your first NHL game experience.
How Long Is the Game?
NHL games consist of three, 20-minute periods. The first two periods have 20 minute intermissions in between. Also, each team gets two timeouts during the course of the game. If a game doesn’t go into overtime, it usually lasts around two hours and 15 minutes. However, keep in mind that because of the lower scoring that comes with hockey, the chances of going into overtime is higher, so plan accordingly.
