Gatorade Center reviews
Only been to see TPS in the hockey here. Not in the same opulent style as the US cathedrals of the sport, but very nice. Also has a great kids area that is free, and you can leave the child or children there for the first two periods, so that is a win!
Great building, lots of services. Great views of the ice surface.
