When I started planning my arena visits for the 2018-19 season, the Southern California swing immediately stood out to me. It was a bigger bonus that the games took place over the President’s Day holiday weekend.

Jenna is the real MVP and I made her a hockey fan by the end of the visit.
After the long flight and countless flight delays, I found myself in a sunny, but cool, Los Angeles. Let’s recap my visits to both Honda Center and Staples Center.
