This March, the Eastern College Athletic Conference pits the slap shots of its top four teams against each other as they skate toward the title of conference champions. ECAC is one of the largest conferences in the country, and since 1961, it has housed athletes from 12 distinguished NCAA Division I institutions. Though the teams playing in the championship have yet to be determined, likely title contenders include Quinnipiac, whose 12–0–2 record in conference play has them atop the standings, as well as Ivy League rivals Yale and Dartmouth, only one of which can leave the tournament wearing spats over their skates.
Under a 137-foot high, barrel vault ceiling, Boardwalk Hall's floor has played host to historic Garden State moments for more than eight decades. The longest clear span space in the world when it opened in 1929, the venue has seen the nation's first indoor football game, the first indoor helicopter flight, and performances by such luminaries as the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, and Louis Armstrong. A $90 million renovation completed in 2001 ushered the space into the new millennium, updating the lighting, improving the acoustics, and roping off a section of seats for time-traveling audience members.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
