For Panther fans who don’t have tickets but want to experience hockey playoff action and some ‘cowboy’ spirit, UPEI Athletics and Recreation, in partnership with The Wave, has opened the Molson Saloon. Opening at 5:00 pm and accessible via the CARI Complex lobby for those aged 19 and older, the saloon is located on the third court of the gym and will feature the live AUStv webcast of the games on an eight-foot screen. Admission to the saloon is $5/per person but is free for game ticket holders who want to join in before game-time or during intermissions.
UPEI students have a chance to win a ticket to Tuesday night’s game as 50 tickets will be available during a special promotion at the Molson Saloon on Monday from 5:00–6:45 pm.
