Can You Hear the Howling?

Follow me on:

The Phoenix Coyotes have won the Pacific Division of the NHL. That's a first for the franchise.

Despite behind-the-scenes financial crises, our Phoenix Coyotes did their job on the ice and for the fans. While we have been in the playoffs before, this will be the first time as Division champs -- there's going to be a WhiteOut at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona! That means that the Coyotes are encouraging all fans to wear white to home games to support the team in their first round playoff games against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Tickets are on sale now for the first two games of Round 1, Stanley Cup Playoffs, here at home on Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 14, 2012 at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $40 in the upper level, and $85 for lower level seats. You can purchase them online. There seem to be plenty of tickets for the Thursday night game, but Saturday tickets are selling fast. If you can't find the tickets you want through Ticketmaster, the official ticket seller for the playoffs, try a reputable ticket broker like TicketsNow.com, which is part of Ticketmaster (Buy Direct). If you plan to buy tickets through a ticket exchange or from a scalper, beware of fake tickets!

Where are my favorite seats for hockey? I like the corners - 104, 108, 115 and 119. That way you aren't moving your head back and forth like at a tennis match and you can see all the action down the ice. But that's just me! Here's a seating chart for Jobing.com Arena.

If you can't get to the games, they will be televised on FOX Sports. I'm sure all the local sports bars will have the game on as well.
