The Buffalo Sabres continue their five-game road trip on Sunday, March 23rd with a trip to Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to take on the Canucks; face-off is at 8 p.m. ET.
Rogers Arena, located at 800 Griffiths Way in Vancouver, seats nearly 19,000 people for hockey. Nicknamed "The Phone Booth," the arena was previously known as GM Place (1995 to 2010) as well as "Canada Hockey Place" for the 2010 Winter Olympics, as corporate sponsors are unable to brand Olympic venues.
Rogers Arena features Centre Ice Grill, a sports bar and restaurant that opens two hours before game time (reservations are suggested). For those who aren't interested in a sit-down meal, the arena has plenty of concession stands to the feed the hungriest appetites. From traditional fare like hot dogs (Southside Grill) and roast beef sandwiches (Sterling’s), to tacos (Amigo’s and Chili Peppers) and Asian-inspired menus (Chop Sticks), Rogers Arena keeps everyone well fed.
Tickets for the Sabres/Canucks game are available through www.ticketmaster.ca; prices range from $69.25 to $240 (plus taxes and fees – Canadian funds).
