« Blackhawks-Predators playoff preview Today's Important Game For White Sox Pitching »

Blackhawks Fri Apr 16 2010

Want to see the game?

With puck-drop a little over 5 hours from now, the NHL playoffs will finally be back in Chicago! The first two nights have seen a spate of upsets, so the Blackhawks will be looking to tame the Predators and jump out to an early series lead.

If you're looking for a place to watch the game with some like-minded fans, options abound.

First, if you really want to get in on the action (and have the money to do so), Ticketmaster's box office is still surprisingly showing tickets available for tonight's game. There's also plenty of seats above face value listed on the Blackhawks Ticketexchange.

If Tax Day left your pockets lighter, but you still want to join up with other fans to cheer on the Hawks, head out to any of the official Blackhawks bars. Though you may want to call ahead to check, with the Cubs game wrapping up this afternoon and the Sox in Cleveland, most if not all of the tvs in these fine drinking emporiums should be tuned into the game.

And of course, don't forget your playoff beard, and raise money for the Blackhawks charities while doing so.

Let's go Hawks!
