Blackhawks fans feeling the pressure going into Game 5

June 20, 2013

"She has the option of going Saturday, she is shooting dad down," said Jim Jacob, Blackhawks fan.

"I'm going to go to the Bandits game instead, why? I'm going to save my luck for game 7," said Kirsten Jacob, Jim's daughter.

"She doesn't have a choice, I don't think the fans would be happy if she missed game 7," said Jim Jacob.

But first, the Hawks have to get through Game 5 at the United Center, where ticket prices on average are higher in the resale market than some seats at Thursday night's NBA Finals Game 7.

The Chicago based online company Vividseats says there are plenty of Stanley Cup tickets available, as long as you are willing to pay.

"To get in standing room only about $300, $600 upper level and $1500 for lower level," said Eric Vassilatos, owner, Vividseats.

And for Game 7, the market place is showing $750 to get in the door. For the best seats the sky is the limit.

Hawks fan Dave Thomas wishes he could go, but he may need his doctors approval. Thomas was released from the hospital Thursday after suffering a mild heart attack while watching Game 3 from home on Monday night.

"Those overtime games are tough, they get me going that is for sure," said Thomas.

Game Five of the Stanley Cup Finals is at United Center Saturday night at 7 p.m. CT.
