If you don’t like overtime, four-plus-hour games and mild heart attacks, then this series really isn’t for you. But if you can stay up until midnight or 1 a.m. watching hockey and can withstand the mini arrhythmias when Patrick Kane goes speeding down the wing alone in overtime, then this series between the Blackhawks and Bruins has been a dream come true.
The series, knotted at two games apiece, has been everything the league and fans could have asked for: two historic teams, tons of emotion, buckets of offensive talent and stellar goaltending. Fans watch players fight for every loose puck, skate their tails off every shift, and sacrifice every bone in their body to get 4 wins before the other guys do. The Bruins' ability to overcome, especially in the Playoffs, and the Blackhawks' pure dominance, which kept them on top for the entirety of the shortened season, has made for a thrilling matchup. Where these guys stand, all tied up at two with two wins away, nobody wants to come this close to watch someone else raise that sacred chalice that is the Stanley Cup.
According to TiqIQ, Blackhawks vs Bruins tickets for game 5 on Saturday night in Chicago are currently averaging $1,267 per seat, with some tickets available for as low as $469. Game 6 and 7 look like this:
· Game 6 in Boston: Avg: $1674 | Get-in: $654
· Game 7 in Chicago: Avg: $2186 | Get-in: $853
Saturday night should be a dandy. Find a sitter, grab the Swanson and throw things at the wall.
