Prior to hockey, ice rinks were primarily used for testing the brakes of SUVs and seeing if computers were durable enough to withstand being dropped on ice. For $14, today’s Groupon gets you access to all the wall-slamming, stick-banging, puck-flying fun of a Texas Stars game. The Texas Stars are the AHL development affiliate of 1998–99 Stanley Cup champs the Dallas Stars. Catch all the explosive, icy action up close from Premium-level seats at the new Cedar Park Center.
Cheer on famed goalie Brent Krahn and Mathieu Beaudoin, who was recently named AHL Player of the Week. You'll watch as the Texas Stars attempt to maintain their icy grip on the division with passes, goals, gentle camaraderie, body checks, and firm camaraderie.
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 or only your estranged dog walker. Hockey's family-friendly nature and pro-fisticuffs political leanings also make it an ideal activity for antsy out-of-town relatives visiting for the annual "It's March!" celebration of the month of March and all that March stands for as a month.
