    Went to the rocket last night. I traveled from west of summerside to watch this game. Well i certainly know 2 reasons why the attendace is down. When we arrived at 6:20pm there was no parking and no one looking after the parking lot.. There was 2 large tour buses parked sideways taking up 20 plus spots so we had to park 2 blocks down from the rink,(NO PARKING) When we walked in at 6:32pm the line up was from one end of the rink to the other and only 3 tellers open. We stood in the lineup and only got into the rink with 9 minutes remaining in the 1st.. Gate 3 was closed so we had to walked back and forth twice to get to our setas. NOT IMPRESSED and will likely not return again after this experience.
