    Why on earth do they start games at the Joe at 6pm.

    It's obvious from the empty seats people are not off work yet.

    Think of the lost hockey related beer and hot dog revenue.

    You mean 7pm right?

    I think it's most people are used to the games starting at 7:30 and forget or dont know when there is a early start.

    The empty seats are not unique to the earlier start.
