Blackhawks Tue Mar 30 2010

Playoff tickets on sale Wednesday

Though you wouldn't know it from their miserable play the last few games, the Chicago Blackhawks, are, in fact, heading back to the Stanley Cup playoffs this season.

The team announced ticket information for the first two rounds of games, with tickets going on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. Central via or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. There will be no box office sales due to limited inventory. By my estimation, there's only about 4,000 tickets available per game to the public.

Fans can purchase up to 8 total tickets during the sale, with no more than 4 for one game. Prices range from $30 to $425 dollars for conference quarterfinal games, and $30 to $450 for the semifinals, though the breakdown of specific pricing has yet to be released.

Meanwhile, the Blackhawks look to turn things around tonight as they battle the Blues in St. Louis at 7 p.m., before heading to Minnesota to take on the Wild tomorrow at the same time. Antti Niemi will get the start in net in front of yet more juggled lines, as coach Joel Quenneville continues to shake things up and attempt to awaken his slumping team.
