So what do you have to do to actually get into the stadium? Or is that not printable?

Last time I was in Vancouver, I listened to the result of the Canucks winning a game from our hotel room - quite some distance from it. I'm not surprised that you can't escape, even if you want to! And that was well before the playoffs...

It seems to be:

1) Like a big concert, you have to camp the sales date and be VERY quick. You also need to have $500-$900/tkt. It's all well sold out by now. 

2) Have a friend in an amazingly high place and/or plead your way into a corporate box

3) Get a scalped ticket for double+ face value

It's a common criticism that the ones in the seats aren't *necessarily* the "biggest" fans, more often they're the richest ones ;)

This is beginning to sound like the UK 2012 Olympics Ticket scandal... (the most ridiculous farce going here at present)

Maybe at whatever the Canuks' stadium is... If you were sneaky/resourceful enough you could almost certainly get into TD Garden for free. I mean, if private security in Boston catches you, good luck, I disavow all knowledge of your existence and never said this, but... since North Station is directly under TD Garden they can't lock the doors. I don't give a crap about hockey but that sounds like a challenge and a story. *sneaksneaksneak*

I've lived here since age 3, and I've never gotten into hockey. :D

Have you tried to get in and failed, or is this because you aren't into hockey?

Watched 2 and ahalf hours straight of hockey with three bro-friends of mine and spent the rest of the day face down on my bed. :/

Haha well that is no fun :) It's definitely not for everyone. 

When I started watching I knew nothing more than "hey these dudes wear skates and they put the black thing in the net." The key is to go to a bar with your friends and be totally disinterested. When they go "AAaa!" you go "Aaaa!" When they go "Wooo!" you go "Wooo!" :) The cheering is really the most interesting aspect for me ;D.

My girlfriend (who made me aware of this awesome site) was much the same way when we started dating.  She would come to a lot of my games without really knowing what happened.  But, she also started watching games with me, went to a few college games (even an awesome birthday weekend where I saw Brodeur play).  Now she loves it.  Anytime you've updated with a comic about the Canucks, she'll always link it to me, because she knows I'm rooting for the Canucks.  Also, psychic Viking Twins is an awesome moniker...

Every time someone takes out Chara, I giggle like a schoolgirl.

He's been the best third defenseman Vancouver's ever had though. Keep him in front of the 'nuck net for the next 2 games and it'll be an easy sweep. :D

having been raised by an atletic mother and a sportsnut father, sports are commonly part of my parents lives. but i never liked watching sports*. but my dad, who works as a supervisor for a company that gives nascar many supplies for their cars, and him going to watch Futbol, what americans call Soccer, and baseball games live we often get free shirts from my dad and when we wear shirts from sertain teams and they confuse us for sports freaks.

Good thing he's not a raiders fan. we would have gotten beatings for not liking that team.

*note this, i still like to play ocasionally, just that i am not allowed to play with the neighborhood boys since i stepped on his toe with steel toe while playing basketball.
