Thursday: $19 student tix available, talk trade deadline with the GM, get autographs from Bruno Gervais
It is the latest "biggest game of the season" and the Islanders need you in the old barn on Hempstead Turnpike.
Did somebody say Havoc Zone?
That's right: if you're a student, for just $19 you can make it to the biggest game of the year on Thursday when Rick DiPietro and the surging Islanders take on Mats Sundin, Bryan McCabe, Tomas Kaberle and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Tickets for the NYI Havoc Energy Zone will go on sale at 6:00 pm on Thursday at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum box office. Opening faceoff between the Islanders and Leafs is at 7:30 pm.
For Thursday's Havoc Zone line there will be two added bonuses:
*Islanders general manager GARTH SNOW will walk the Line and say hello (so here's your chance to make your trade deadline requests known!)
* In addition, Islanders defenseman BRUNO GERVAIS will be available to sign autographs and take photos from 5:15 pm 6:00 pm.
Tell your friends all about the Havoc Zone and let's make this our biggest night of Havoc yet! If Thursday turns out to be a cold night, no worries: the Coliseum has been gracious enough to let our Havoc-ians wait inside if it's brutally cold like Monday. And note that on Thursday, the complete Zone is available. After Thursday there are only four games available for the Havoc Zone:
* Tuesday, Feb. 27 vs. Philadelphia at 7:30 pm
* Thursday, March 1 vs. St Louis at 7:30 pm
* Thursday, March 22 vs. Pittsburgh at 7:30 pm
* Tuesday, March 27 vs. New Jersey at 7:30 pm
The NYI Havoc Energy Zone was created by the New York Islanders as a way to reach out to Long Island students, the next generation of Islanders fans. Thanks to the generosity of Islanders ownership, along with our creative partnership with Havoc Energy Drink, students of all ages can get lower bowl endzone tickets for Islanders games for just $19.
Rules and Regs:
If you're a student and you want to be in the Zone, show up at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on the day of the game. Tickets for the NYI Havoc Energy Zone will be sold at the Coliseum box office starting 90 minutes before the opening faceoff. Of course, the earlier you get there, the more incredible the seats you'll be able to get for your 19 bucks.
If the Havoc Energy Zone is completely sold out, do not despair: based on availability, the Coliseum box office will still try to find you tickets for the $19 student price.
