Hockey combines the speed of basketball, the hard hits of football, and the glistening blades of competitive shaving. Study frozen fusion with this GrouponLive deal to see the Rivals for Relief 2013 hockey game, featuring NYPD officers and former NHL players, at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, March 24, at noon. For $45, you get one G-Pass for lower-bowl seating in the front half of the 100-level sections (up to an $80 value, including fees).

Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.

New York City police officers carry out a wide range of duties to protect and serve, but "play against some of the world's finest hockey players" rarely appears in their job description. That will change on Sunday, March 24, when the NYPD hockey team faces off against a squad of retired NHL stars—most of whom once played for the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, or New Jersey Devils—in a hard-hitting exhibition to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Held under the bright lights of Madison Square Garden, the event will let spectators relive the glory days with some of the Tri-State area's past hockey stars and pay tribute to their city's everyday heroes.

Seventy percent of the proceeds from the game will go directly to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, which contributes to both short-term aid and long-term rebuilding and restoration efforts. The remaining 30 percent will be split between the NYC Police Foundation—which directly benefits NYPD families affected by the storm—and the Stan Lee Foundation, which hopes to assist children in storm-decimated areas with afterschool programs taught by teachers who've been bitten by radioactive spiders.

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.
