Game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals, then owner, Arthur Griffiths and the Canucks front office opened up Pacific Coliseum to have their fans watch the Canucks on a big screen. I was fortunate enough to be one of those 14,000 (or so) people to be in the arena to watch the game. The result wasn’t what us Canucks fans were hoping for in 1994, but the experience that I had watching in our home arena, on a big screen, was an incredible one. I believe proceeds from the ticket sales that night went to Canuck Place.
This year, Canucks Sports and Entertainment, are offering fans a chance to buy tickets to watch Games 3 and 4 at Rogers Arena, on the Jumbo-tron. You get to share an experience, like I did back in 1994, with your fellow fans in our home arena. For just $10 dollars, and availability of the seats, you can watch your team on an away game, at home. Does it really get any better than that when the boys are away? No, not really. The best part about all of it is, the net proceeds of this event go to benefit the Canucks for Kids Fund.
Luckily for me, I was able to acquire a pair of tickets for Game 3 and here on Canucks Corner, we like to give them away to a lucky reader and fan of our site. Want to watch the Canucks on the Jumbo-tron at Rogers Arena for Game 3?
