St. Louis Blues NHL team keeps winning more games so tickets become harder to find for Webster Students.
The Blues are not only ranked first in the Western Conference of the NHL, but as of March 12, 2012, they are ranked first in the NHL with 98 points. Under new head coach Ken Hitchcock the Blues are currently 45-19-7. T.J Oshie and David Backes both with 48 points are leading the Blues in points. With players such as Oshie, Backes and Coach Hitchcock the Blues have all the ingredients to continue their stellar season.
The season, so far, is good for the organization and St. Louis, but as the Blues get hotter, ticket prices seem to rise and become harder to find. According to Ticketmaster.com, ticket prices for the March 31 game Vs. Columbus for the upper bowl at Scottrade range from $43.20 to $79.50. Many of the seats are already sold and single seat tickets are becoming more common for Blues home games.
“Blues games used to be easy to get tickets to, sometimes even the day of the game, but now you have to order tickets almost a month before and they cost more,” said junior Payne Alexander.
Students may find it hard to get cheap upper bowl seats at the Scottrade center any more with the way the Blues have been playing this season. Students with a budget may have to watch on Fox Sports Midwest, who televises almost every game.
