Revisiting this thread, thanks all. I am now going to travel to the USA for the first time later this year. I am looking to spend 7 nights in NY and 5 in Boston. I just hope I am able to get some Rangers tickets.
I suspect this isn’t easy? I arrive on the day they play the Blues and they play the Devils while I am there. They play Pens on the day I leave for Boston. Canucks and Sabres are in Boston while I am in town, so I will aim to make one of those.
Not sure yet how to get tickets.
Looking forward to my first trip. No idea what to expect. Hotel booked in Midtown NY. Nothing booked in Boston yet. Not sure yet how to get tickets. Plenty of work to do before I travel, but I am determined to enjoy the experience! Sounds like your leaning towards the Rangers.

I’ve got to show respect to another original six team but let me try and sell you one last time on Toronto based on your original criteria. Tourism: Toronto is the best city in Canada to visit if you are a tourist! We’ve got many modern attractions like the ROM and the new Ripley’s Aquarium, and old attractions like the Canadian National Exhibition and Casa Loma.
Aside from attractions Toronto has the best assortment of restaurants in any city I’ve ever been to. This may be part in parcel with the fact that Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. We’ve got communities of almost every background (Including English) and all of the communities amalgamate with each other to form the wonderful multicultural city that we are.
Stars of Team: The current stars of our team are forwards Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and William Nylander, along with defenceman Morgan Reilly. Other Hockey Teams: The other hockey team located in/near downtown Toronto are the Toronto Marlies. They are the AHL affiliate of the Leafs, with players from the Marlies frequently being called upon to fill Leafs roster sports when players are injured.
They have a relatively short history, coming into existence int eh early 2000’s, but have enjoyed relative success and have been the stepping stone for many of the current Leaf players, including Willam Nylander and Name Kadri. Their arena is located in the Canadian National Exhibition, making for a fun time on game days.
Just outside of Toronto (in Mimico, about 10 minutes from downtown), we have the Toronto Furies, a women’s team consistiing of some of Canadas female olympic hockey players, including star player Natalie Spooner. About 25 minutes from downtown, we have the Mississauga Steelheads, our OHL team.
Arena Experience: I think the Air Canada Centre (home of the Leafs) has one of the best game-day experiences around. Bars: One thing Toronto may not be the most well-known for is its bars. Although we have some fantastic bars, it is not a major part of our city, something some people like and something others don’t.
Among the best pubs are the many Firkin pubs across Toronto. I’m not sure if you have those back in England back they are marketed to us as tradition British pubs, and they are some of the most popular pubs in Toronto. They are also home to many of the sports fans in Toronto, often having pint and watching either the Leafs or TFC.
