Like hockey? Then you already know that the Columbus Blue Jackets of the NHL are having a once-in-a-lifetime season. They are poised to break the all time NHL wins streak.
And if you're a hockey fan, you already know that former Brandon Wheat King captain and hometown hero, Matt Calvert plays for the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Wouldn't it be amazing to see Matt play and cheer on the Blue Jackets? Did you know that you can pick up a flight from Winnipeg, or Minot and six hours later be in Columbus? And prices are currently around $400 per round trip, depending on dates.
The Columbus Blue Jackets play at the Nationwide Arena. The arena is 8 miles from the airport, so a taxi or Uber is pretty inexpensive ($20).The international airport code is CMH for the John Glen International Airport.
Lots of hotels right by the arena including a Marriott, Hyatt and a Hilton.
Tickets? I'm a fan of Stubhub.com. Using the January 19th game as an example, (It's against Mark Stone and the Ottawa Senators) you can pick up tickets for as low as $20 each, upper deck, or $44 each for lower bowl. That's a pretty amazing price for any NHL game.
As a second example, you could take your valentine to Columbus and see two home games. Flights and hotel, tax included (expedia.ca) for $700 per person, plus tickets. The Blue Jackets play the Rangers on the 13th of February, and the Leafs (Auston Matthews) on the 15th.
So, to recap, once-in-a-lifetime season, Matt Calvert, Columbus, about $800 per person.
You should go.
