Originally invented by bored henchmen looking to pass the time at Doctor Berserko’s secret Antarctic lair, hockey has since overtaken polo and unicycle jousting as America's pastime. Hop on the bandwagon with today’s Groupon. For $12, you get a premium-level ticket (a $21 value) to see the Las Vegas Wranglers slice ice against the Ontario Reign on either Thursday, April 1, or Friday, April 2, at 7:05 p.m. at the Orleans arena.
Voted the Best Local Sports Team in 2009 by the staff of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Wranglers have the highest winning percentage in the ECHL's history and seven league records. Take in the action and excitement from premium-level seats, where you'll sit middle-ice-side with unobstructed views and no need to squint or crane. On Thursday, April 1, take advantage of $1 beer night, or challenge seatmates to Go Fish games between periods with the giveaway of Wranglers team playing cards on Friday, April 2.
Hockey is like the magnificent mutt of the sporting world. You get the suspense of watching an object swish through a net (like in basketball or soccer), the thrill of rambunctious brawls (boxing), the elegance of ice skating, and the utter brutality of golf all combined into one action-packed event. Take your whole family to cheer on the team, or put your hot-headed friend on ice with a fun-filled, chilly sports outing.
The Las Vegas Sun recounts the Wranglers' recent thrilling win against the Bakersfield Condors:
- Going to the net, [right-winger Alex] Bourret shot the puck off of the seamless glass behind the Condors goal. He collected the rebound and pushed it between the post and Bakersfield goaltender Timo Pielmeier’s pad...Goaltender Jimmy Spratt allowed two early Bakersfield goals but shut the door on the Pacific Division leaders from there. He stopped 38 of 40 shots in the win. – Anthony Fenech
