    Thanks. Won't want to go that high anyway...just above the glass.

    Odd, there were multiple ads I saw online on Friday saying the concert was on Saturday at Tsongas.

That and it likely prevented both teams from getting a morning/afternoon skate in at the rink. Combined, I think that caused a lot of the helter-skelter play from both teams all night. By the time the third period rolled around the ice was clearly in brutal shape, the puck was bouncing around like a ping pong ball, there appeared to be dead spots that guys were tripping on. It was awful, and the league should've strongly considered making this a Thursday/Friday/Sunday series.

    Correct. We got a $5m bond from UMass Building Authority (or something close) for arena improvements. There is another full bar under that which is open to all, whereas the Pavillion club needs a ticket. Other renovations from that bond were the Diamondvision scoreboard and the side ribbon boards. The school taking over the arena from the city ($1 and assumption of debt ($2-3m)) from the city. was one of the best things the school has ever done.

    - Were the luxury boxes added later than the original construction? I had not been in several years, but I thought I remembered it feeling more "open" in the concourse area. Not as open as the Whit, but more than Agganis. So I was wondering if the boxes were added recently.
    The boxes on the scorer's/penalty boxes side of the rink (i.e. at the top of sections 116-120) have always been there, but before UML bought the arena they were all media boxes, now only one is for the media. However, the Pavilion Club at the top of sections 122-124 which takes up the entire concourse area and no longer allows one to walk completely around the concourse was built by UML after they bought the arena.

    - Also, I always appreciate a good band. But magnifying the sound so loudly over the speaker system was obnoxious. Especially during the glacially-moving last minute of the game. The quality was good, though the song selection was different - at times I didn't even realize it was the band I was listening to, because the song just seemed to be some random song I didn't know.

    Anyway, glad the Terrier band was there.
    The 5 boxes have always been there. At least one is reserved for press. I believe there is space above them available to build out other boxes that could be true luxury boxes but don't quote me on that.

    Regarding volume, I noticed the same thing and didn't like it either. I'd like to think they left it at the 'usual' volume and didn't adjust for 2,000 less people that would help absorb the sound but I think they just screwed up. As a rule, if you tweet @tsongascenter about such things, you may notice some quick response. Sound volume may be out of their reach but when our section doesn't have an usher, one shows up pretty quick after such a tweet.
