CHICAGO (CBS) — The Chicago Blackhawks face elimination when they take the ice for Game 5 of their Western Conference Final against the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night at the United Center. If you want to see it in person, you may be able to go for a fraction of the ticket’s face value.
Prices are still substantial for front-row seats. Chicago Ticket Connection is advertising a front row seat for $1,800, while Gold Coast Tickets is advertising $1,400 for the front row and $675 for Row 7.
Beyond that, ticket prices fall sharply.
It’s not just that the Hawks lost but the way they lost that is depressing prices for brokers such as Max Waisvisz of Gold Coast Tickets.
“Ticket prices have come down really a lot,” he said.
Waisvisz said he doesn’t want to be stuck with upper-level tickets for Game 5.
“I’m selling tickets at way below face value — and I’ve got tons of them,” he said.
