    Love going to hockey games here. The food at the concession stands is decent, but if you don't like that they have a restaurant in the building. They have a great beer selection and you can even get wine and cocktails.

    Had a great time at the Jackals game. Serves beer and wine and I think cocktails too. Saw like three fights and Jackals won all three. Refs didn't stop it till they locked or one was knocked on his hind end. it was awesome.

    This is the best hockey in the area! We have a great team and will make the playoffs this year. We have been in the playoffs 4 out the last 5 years and we won the cup once. It's the next best thing to the NHL!
