I will point out the pens have stayed at the W in hoboken in the past. i ran into a few pens eating at one of the sushi restaurants the night before one of the games last year

Minimal driving and there are a ton of great affordable restaurants in the Ironbound, which is still a safe place to park and walk in Newark. Have fun.
Notice the two locals gave nearly identical advice.
I'm a Pittsburgh boy who's lived in the NY area for the last 13 years. I can't give you any better advice than these two fine folks already have.
There's no reason to stay in Newark if the only thing you want to do there is go to a three hour hockey game. You can grab a train to/from the 'Rock' very easily.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
