Seeing the Blackhawks play for their third Stanley Cup in six years will cost you. Game three presale tickets cost up to $1,200 on Ticketmaster and the cheapest come in at $140. The presale for the first game at the United Center in Chicago starts today at noon.
Tickets for Game One in Tampa Bay cost up to $996.75 and as low as $241.75 in the upper level. You'll have to deal with the club's strange ticket and fan apparel restrictions, though—the Lightning have a clause in their ticket sales that restricts fans with area codes outside of Florida from purchasing tickets through their website, a procedure the organization has had in place throughout the playoffs. Tampa Bay will also make visiting fans remove opposing team apparel if sitting in certain club sections of their arena.
It looks like it will be a headache either way, but for those dedicated fans, seeing a Stanley Cup Final live may be worth the trouble. Here's the full ticket pricing for Game Three in Chicago:
