Ticket prices through the roof for chance to witness Blackhawks’ first Cup win on home ice since 1938

CHICAGO — Considering the Blackhawks haven’t hoisted the Stanley Cup on home ice since 1938, ticket prices for tonight’s game are predictably through the roof.

Over at secondary seller StubHub, the cheapest ticket is priced at $806.89, and that’s to stand at the top of the United Center the whole game. To sit in Row 16 of the upper deck, the price is $1,249.50.

The most expensive ticket, to sit front row between the blue lines, is listed at $25,000. Though, remember, that doesn’t mean anyone will actually pay that much.

Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook reiterated yesterday that it was going to be a challenge for the Blackhawks to stay focused on the “task at hand.”

“It’s not just another game, but that’s the way we got to try to approach it,” he said. “It’s a huge game.

“Tomorrow there’s going to be a lot of things going on throughout the day, morning, afternoon and night. Lots of things going on throughout the game, too, different battles and things like that. We’ve got to be prepared for the game, the task at hand.”
