RBC Center Says Goodbye to Ice, Hockey For the Season

Current Image from The RBC CenterWell, the Stanley Cup playoffs are officially over for me, with the Canes getting swept and eliminated in short order against Pittsburgh.

The RBC Center took little time before melting down the ice, and clearing it away. I first checked the RBC Center’s webcam around 11am this morning, and the ice was still fully intact, and the Olympias (RBC doesn’t use the Zamboni brand) were actually running. I’m not sure what that was about — possibly they were spraying the ice with warm water to assist in melting it.

Regardless, the ice is all gone now, leaving a concrete floor for the Sesame Street Live crew to setup on. It looks like that’s well underway— curtain is up, and there’s been some action/assembly going on on the floor.

Only a couple months till football starts up, then next season’s hockey starts up and finally basketball. We’ve hit that lull in sporting events I care about.

  1. Looks like they’re setting up for a concert now on the live feed at the RBC! Pretty cool!
