PocketWizards at Pro Sports Arenas - Washington Capitals / Verizon Center

I just purchased PocketWizard Flextt5 & Mini TT1 and was wondering if I brought my camera in with a Minitt5 attached, would I be able to tap into their lighting system?

I was recently at a Washington Capitals game and noticed a guy shooting in the suite next to us. He had the older multi-max system (on his Nikon) with a 200-400mm and it appeared as if he was triggering the lighting system there...as he put his eye to the viewfinder, about 2 seconds later you would see the flash trigger from the ceiling, and then he would pull his head away.

Any laws against using the arena flash system? I doubt anyone there would tell you it was ok, but with a Minitt5, would anyone really know?
