OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that Scotiabank Place and the Red Zone will be open for Game 1 on Monday, May 28, and for all road games during the Stanley Cup final. Fans can watch the game inside Scotiabank Place on the video scoreboard or on one of two 9'x12' LED SENSvision screens, presented by Scotiabank, on the Red Zone.
Red pompoms, courtesy of the Ottawa Citizen, will be handed out to everyone watching the game, while fans watching the game inside Scotiabank Place and on the Red Zone will have the opportunity to win one of five pairs of tickets to Senators' first home game of the Stanley Cup final. The Red Zone will open at 5 p.m. for all road games, while the doors to Scotiabank Place will open at 7 p.m.
Food and drinks will be available in the Molson True Fan Headquarters tent and the Caribbean-themed Bert's on the Red Zone, while a live band will entertain. Two projection 60" hi-definition screens will be featured in the tent and approximately 50 television screens in Marshy's and Frank Finnigan's. There will be street hockey, a kids interactive area, face painting, a life-size team photo and an inflatable Stanley Cup. The Sony PlayStation® Experience will also be part of the Red Zone for all home games.
On Monday, May 28, the evening will start with a convoy of cars traveling from Lansdowne Park to the Red Zone at Scotiabank Place. Fans who are unable to participate in the convoy can still come to the Red Zone to take part in the festivities.
Sens fans participating in the convoy are asked to meet at Lansdowne Park (south side of the Aberdeen Pavilion) by 5 p.m. and to decorate their cars, fly car flags and dress up in Senators gear. The top three decorated cars will win one of three pairs of tickets to the Senators' first home game of the Stanley Cup final on Saturday, June 2. Stuntman Stu from the Team 1200's Three Guys On The Radio morning show will lead the convoy, while A-Channel's Bill Welychka will host the events on the Red Zone.
The Red Zone will be open until the end of the game. Visit www.ottawasenators.com for more details. Admission and parking are free.
The Ottawa Senators Foundation will collect donations at all away games at Scotiabank Place during the Stanley Cup final. Donations will be collected in memory of Elgin Fraser and will support the Neuroblastoma Research Fund at CHEO and other childhood cancer charities in the region. Three-year-old Elgin died of cancer on Saturday, May 19, just hours after he watched his favourite team, the Ottawa Senators, win a place in the Stanley Cup final.
