AHL Playoffs: Western Conference Finals Game 1

17 May 2008 No Comment

I arrived at the Allstate Arena about 45 minutes early. That gave me enough time to walk around the Target Shopping area adjacent to the arena. The shopping center has a couple of sit down restaurant – Chili’s and a Steakhouse (not sure of the name). I walked into Chili’s and it was packed. Many people were Chicago Wolves fans and there were a few Cubs fans coming back from the afternoon’s Cubs game.

I ended up eating at Subway and then tried to find a ticket outside the arena. With no scalpers and no fans having extra tickets, I bought a $12 ticket at the window. There were a few fans that were pulling off the “Chicago Cubs / Chicago Wolves” doubleheader. For some reason the game did not start until 7:55 pm. I though it might be because the smoke was lingering to long from the introductions.
