Hockey teams are often named after intimidating natural phenomena, such as the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Colorado Avalanche, and the Tuscaloosa Puberty. Experience the fury with today's Groupon to see the Connecticut Whale play the Manchester Monarchs at the XL Center on December 11 at 7 p.m. Choose from the following seating options:
- For $12, you get one adult lower-level ticket (a $19 value).
- For $8, you get one upper-level ticket (a $12 value).
Coached by former player Ken Gernander, the Whale (formerly the Hartford Wolf Pack) aim to claw their way up the AHL standings with the help of center Kris Newbury's near-omniscient ice vision, right wing Jeremy Williams's smoke-trailed slap shots, and Lee Baldwin's Plexiglass-bending defensive checks. As you watch the two teams lacerate the ice, exploit power plays, and practice kinetic dentistry, you might just see a future NHL superstar emerge from the ranks. The Whale's throngs of cheering families and letter-painted torsos are guaranteed an exhilarating spectacle regardless of which team wins, which is more than can be said for most flying-saucer invasions.
