Devils' arena set to debut
I never got a chance to see New Jersey's old digs, but from all accounts, the Continental Airlines Arena wasn't the nicest place to watch a hockey game. (To quote one great modern philosopher, it was "a concrete crap-hole with a comfort level somewhere between a traffic court waiting room and a lumpy sofa.")
The Devils finally christen their new building, the Prudential Center (which is being dubbed 'The Rock w/ Sean Connery'), on Saturday against Ottawa. They already let native son Jon Bon Jovi come and rock The Rock yesterday.
Greg Wyshynski, another native son with not quite so much Richie Sambora, had a good look at what the new rink means for Newark at FanHouse earlier this week.
