NHL: San Jose Sharks at Chicago Blackhawks

28 March 2009 No Comment

On Wednesday night, I witnessed an NHL game go to a shootout for the fourth time. The San Jose Sharks, who were behind 4-1 and 5-3 during the game, came back with two goals in the final 5:07 to tie the game at 5 goals apiece – becoming the 15th NHL game I have attended where two teams combined to score more than 10 goals in the same game.

The Blackhawks made their first two shootout attempts while the Sharks missed their first two resulting in the Blackhawks OT win.

Obtaining Tickets
While walking to the United Center I bought a $15 face value ticket for $10. I had hoped to pay $5 but everyone who had a $15 ticket wanted $10.

Pre Game and Post Game Dining
Before the game, I met my cousin and his friends at the Beer Bistro – our usual pre game restaurant. After the game we went back to the Beer Bistro. I generally do not go back to the same place I went before the game but my cousin is a big fan of the Beer Bistro and since he was giving me a ride home – I did not have much say.
