Finally! Just heard on the radio that this is the first time, since the opening of the United Center, that so many spectators are in the arena. Did I get this right?

Every ticket was sold for todays game (I think that's a 1st), but it's not a UC record. From the official site..

Quote:
"During the second season of action at the UC, the Blackhawks set another NHL attendance record, becoming the first team in league history to average 20,000+ fans for an entire 41-game regular season. Chicago averaged 20,415 fans per game as 837,021 fans came to watch their Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks continued to set attendance records during their third season at the United Center as a team record 22,819 packed the UC for a matinee against Wayne Gretzky and the New York Rangers on February 15, 1997."
There must have been some standing room tickets remaining for that Rangers game.

I couldnt believe i couldnt get tickets for this game. Im used to just buying tickets at the last second but i was left dissapointed today. This is a great sign though and would not have it any other way.

It seems like now that some games are beng televised you all are starting to sell some tickets. I know a couple people from Chicago and they said they weren't going to a blackhawks game until games came back on TV. Welcome back guys. I guess no more road trips up to see the blues play and getting tickets real cheap.

Chicago will become one of the hottest hockey market in USA within next 5 years...when Hawks start to broadcast all 82 of their games (not to mention playoff games too).

Congrats. I have missed the Blackhawks. They are essential to the success of the NHL.

A good Hawks team can also help in keeping those Red Wings in their place.

awesome news indeed.

Kane and Toews are worth the price of admission!

Took my Nephew and brother to this game. I was really surprised over a week before the game that it was sold out and Standing room was the only thing available. Either way, it was nice to see the place packed to the gills. This game had all the makings for a Sellout

-First game back from a long Roadie
-A Full Healthy Lineup (yes Even Havlat, its true ----minus habby)
-A Noon Sunday Start...

What else could you ask for?????Well besides televising the game

This team is fun to watch, and the rest of Chicago is finally starting to notice. There are a ton of young talented players on this team that that go deeper than those named Toews or Kane.

The Drawback to the Game was that the Lanch had no business being in this game. The HAwks dominated pretty much every aspect. I was a bit dissapointed in how quiet a sold out crowd was there. I have always heard that the old Chicago Stadium was a loud rocking place. Seems like the UC deadens that.....

As a side note, I feel i have to mention this, and this may even be useful as its own thread. The hawks have had basically no mention on the local sports radio, so i pretty much did a head shake when i was driving home from Work on Tuesday, and heard Mac/Jurko/&Harry talking HAwks.....We are talking five minutes, not the normal 30 seconds when harry tries to talk them up then is interuppted by the Goal horn to change the subject....Props to them for that, it's about time.... ( i think i am going to Email them BTW)

Maybe some of these guys are finally realizing they have exhausted all avenues with the Bulls pretty much sucking it up all season and have totally underachieved, the Bears are not going to go anywhere even if they have the Best QB behind that Terrible O-Line, and that they needed some filler while baseball picks up. Either way good for the Hawks

Bruins fans here, nice to see a team outdraw Montreal every once in a while. According to this website (http://www.mib.org/~lennier/hockey/graph.cgi) that's not the only time you've hit that number this year. The highest this season was 21,869 against Detroit on January 6.

Either way, congrats!

I was at this game. I'm not really a Hawks fan, but I recently moved to Chicago and I still like going to the games. The crowd was really into it, and so was I, cause I really hate the Avs. Great game to attend. I've been to five or six this season and that was the best one.

edit: Was also at that Detroit game that was mentioned earlier. It seemed like more people were at the Avs game to me though.
