The Chicago Blackhawks are hosting the Detroit Red Wings at the United Center in Chicago’s best game today. The puck drops at 11:30 am meaning you will need to get an early start. In fact, I believe this is the earliest start time ever for any professional sporting event in Chicago.
Tonight’s best game to attend is actually in Milwaukee as the Milwaukee Bucks host LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Bradley Center. If you are not looking to drive that far your next option is to watch the Dallas Mavericks play the Chicago Bulls at the United Center.
As usual tickets for the Bucks game are cheap. StubHub is currently listing upper level seats for less than $20. Bulls’ tickets are also cheap – upper level seats between $20 and $30. Be sure to use …
The best game to attend tonight is the Chicago Blackhawks game at the United Center. While one might think it is expensive to attend a Blackhawks game, remember to check Ticketmaster before buying anywhere else. Although only singles are currently available, there have been times where seats (available on Ticketmaster) are priced above face value on StubHub.
The Chicago Bulls game is by far the best game in Chicago or Milwaukee today. Plus, it should be cheap as the Bulls are playing the Memphis Grizzlies. Plan to use the everyday game ticket buying strategy as you arrive at the United Center.
The Chicago Blackhawks host the Edmonton Oilers in the best game in Chicagoland tonight. Puck drops at 7:30 pm at the United Center.
Your next best bet (or if you live in Milwaukee and do not want to drive to Chicago), is the Milwaukee Bucks game versus the Washington Wizards. Tip off is 7:00 pm at the Bradley Center.
There are two Big East games in Chicagoland tonight. First, DePaul hosts South Florida at Allstate Arena at 6:30 pm. Second, Marquette hosts Louisville at the Bradley Center at 8:30 pm – the better match up of the two.
Depending on timing, you could also attend both the Marquette and UW-Milwaukee games tonight. UW-Milwaukee hosts UI-Chicago at 7:00 pm at U.S. Cellular Arena. If that game ends quickly you could walk across the street and catch the start of the Marquette game.
For the first time since January 11, the Chicago Bulls are home on a Monday night. They host the Atlanta Hawks at the United Center starting at 7 pm tonight. Tickets to the game should be cheap so wait to buy outside of the arena rather than purchasing from StubHub.
If you want to see the Connecticut women’s basketball team continue on their undefeated season (they are two wins short of their previous Division I record of 70 consecutive wins), drive over to South Bend, IN to see them …
There really is not much taking place in Chicagoland or Milwaukee today. Your best bet is to attend the AHL game at Allstate Arena between the Chicago Wolves and the Rockford IceHogs.
Other than that you could watch the Northwestern women’s basketball team host Illinois at Welsh-Ryan Arena.
Not much is taking place in Chicagoland tonight. If you have to attend a game, I would recommend either the UIC Flames (1:00 pm tip off) or Loyola Ramblers (3:00 pm tip off) men’s basketball games.
Another option is to attend the DePaul women’s basketball game at 7:00 pm tonight. McGrath Arena is in a great area of Chicago and will give you a lot of pre-game or post-game dining options.
