    Unfortunately, I've only been to MSG and Barclays, as I generally vacation in the summer when there's no hockey or around the holidays when I'm home. But one of these years I wanna go on vacation and take a tour of some arenas around the league.

    I was at a game in 2004 where Jagr, Messier, and Leetch were all on the ice at the same time, on the same team, on the same line. I consider that a feather in my cap. They all scored too.

    I also saw Anthony Beauvillier's first NHL goal and I saw Derek Boogaard score once.

    I was in attendance when Ovechkin tied Rocket Richard on the all-time list in goals, at the Bell Centre in Montreal. I thought it was particularly nice that he did it in Montreal of all places.

    I've been to two arenas only, the Bell Centre and the Verizon Center (now Capital One Arena).

    In 2010, saw the game where Phoenix beat Chicago in a shootout to eclipse the 100 point mark for the first (and only) time in franchise history.......I don't get out much.

    Also saw Pavol Demitra's last game in the NHL when Chicago knocked out Vancouver in 6 games that same year.

    Not sure if it would be considered "notable" but my first game I ever went to Dustin Brown had a hat trick over the Blues.

    I was at the game where Selanne broke Bossy's rookie goal record with a hat trick (and his famous celebration). Just magic.
    Also, the last Heritage classic game in Winnipeg with the Oilers vs Jets legends.

    edit: ^ nice clip
