Canucks Sport and Entertainment head Victor de Bonis says Rogers Arena will be opened during away games, allowing fans to watch the action on the huge screen above centre ice.
De Bonis says the plan will work as long as there are no conflicts with events already scheduled for the downtown Vancouver arena.
Given the Canucks’ fans penchant for filling their opponents’ arenas during road games, I can imagine Boston/Tampa would fully endorse the idea of Canucks fans staying home and hanging out in their own building for games 3,4 and (perhaps) 6.
Are any Canucks fans you know planning on traveling to Boston or Tampa for the away games? Seems like a long, expensive trip for a fan, but who knows… people do seem to find a way.
How far have you traveled to watch an away game?
