Blackhawks vs Wild Game

Nice, clean venue. We were able to get right up to the glass to see the players warm up. We had a great time watching two great teams and were happy with a Blackhawks win!

My son, wife and I travelled to see the Wild play the Blackhawks on Tuesday the 21st. Parking and access was top notch - we used parking panda and were only a couple of blocks away in surface parking for 16 dollars - very reasonable for big league sports parking. The arena has some really nice concourses and food venues.... More

My husband and I are huge hockey fans. We love to attend games and have been to numerous venues. The Xcel Energy Center is by far our favorite venue and I have yet to have a bad seat. Everyone is very helpful from the Hockey Lodge, to the food vendors. We will be back as many times as we can!... More

Great place for a hockey game - especially watching the Wild - not a bad seat in the house - although our favorite are the rail seats on the club level.

Went for the 02/18 game against Nashville. What a blast! This is the cleanest and most well taken care of sports venue I've been to. Everybody here was so nice! Fans were super polite and respectful. Servers were great! Thanks the most to all the "Hockey Moms" helping serve snacks and beer at the 200 Level Snack Counter near the... More

I really enjoyed the Club Level experience. There is only 8 rows of seats in this section and it provides for really great, quick service. I attended a Wild game and although full of 19,000+ people I felt very at ease and free to move around, not cramped. Plenty of bathrooms and places to grab food at. We also had... More

Like others, I have a few favorite teams. I love my Washington Redskins, my Minnesota Twins, my Tennessee Vols, but nobody compares to my Minnesota Wild. For anyone who has never gone to a Wild game, listen carefully. THERE IS NO OTHER GAME EXPERIENCE ANYWHERE THAT COMPARES TO A GAME AT THE EXCEL. If I lived closer to St. Paul,... More

Every seat here is excellent for hockey. Have been to numerous concerts as well and both the seating and sound have always been excellent. Great arena! The men's bathroom's can get crazy congested:(

I have been to the Excel Energy Center a dozen times, but I figured it's time to give a good review. Went to the Wild game on 2/12 against the Red Wings. One of the best arenas I've been to. Great seating, clean arena and a fun atmosphere. Also plenty of options for vendors.

Thank ajb388
