San Jose Sharks at Chicago Blackhawks

15 March 2011 No Comment

My friend, and FoxSoccer.com writer, Jamie Trecker wanted to attend the Blackhawks game tonight. So Nicole worked on her dissertation at home, which allowed me to attend the game.

Beg, Borrow and Deal
Once again I went directly to the box office to see what seats were available. I thought I could beat the $27 SRO price point, but that finding three seats together would be difficult. Rather than try to find seats from scalpers, I decided to buy the SRO tickets. As soon as did there were supposedly no tickets left as the guy next to me tried to buy an SRO ticket and was denied. I felt lucky to grab the last three tickets.

However, trying to find three seats together did not work out very well. We ended up in the Madhouse Bar for the second period and finally found a relatively empty row for the third period.

San Jose Sharks at Chicago Blackhawks
It was a rematch of the Western Conference Finals from 2010 and both teams are fighting for playoff positioning. The Blackhawks scored 5 goals in the second period as Marian Hossa led the charge with two power play goals within three minutes. Patrick Kane scored the 100th goal of his career and Patrick Sharp had a career-high four assists as the Blackhawks held on to win 6-3.
