Around the UC: More playoff tickets

-Chicago Tribune: More Hawks playoff tickets on sale Wednesday (tomorrow)

"For fans thinking big after the Blackhawks' first-round playoff conquest of the Predators, the team announced Tuesday that single-game tickets for potential Western Conference finals and Stanley Cup finals games will go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday."

For more information on where you can buy your tickets go: here

-Looks like the Hawks will be playing Saturday and Monday instead of Friday and Sunday. Nothing is positive, yet. The official schedule will be released tomorrow. VancouverSun.com: Try Saturday night fever

Canucks coach Vigneault: "I gave you some bad information yesterday about the series starting Friday. We're not quite sure anymore, so the league will let us know here in the next little while. I think it's Friday or Saturday. Or Thursday."

Shane O'Brien: "There is a lot of history and bad blood there. Every guy in the room remembers the feeling of leaving Chicago last year. It was one of the worst feelings I had ever been through. We definitely want to get some redemption on those guys."

Kesler on Ladd: "I'm not too worried about him. I am more worried about winning the series and trying to get even that way. No payback. I'm just looking at winning the series."

"For last night’s thrilling Game 6 playoff win by the Blackhawks, Comcast SportsNet attracted approx. 323,492 households for the entire game and scored a 12.63 peak rating during the 10:30 PM quarter-hour (over 442,000 households). The 9.24 single game ratings record on Comcast SportsNet shatters the previous all-time record set on May 11, 2009 for the Blackhawks second round Game 6 clinching win vs. Vancouver (7.82). During the 2009-10 “regular season,” Comcast SportsNet set an all-time single game ratings record on six occasions with the latest “regular season” record being a 4.35 household rating for a home game vs. Vancouver on March 5."

Sharp: "They've quickly turned into a big rival of ours. It's two teams that probably don't like each other very much and it's going to be great playoff hockey."

Sharp: "We have a lot of respect for what they can do. They have played us tough every time (in) last year's playoffs and the regular season this year. It's going to be one big challenge for us but we're looking forward to it."

Burrows: "It should be a pretty interesting matchup. There are a lot of guys on their team that we know and we have rivalries against. We'd like to play them again and beat them."

Coach Q: "When you play a playoff series with a team, that's where it starts. Rivalries and emotion and the intensity are in place."

-ESPNChicago: NHL won't punish Keith for squirting fan (First off why is this even an issue, so dumb)

"According to league sources, the NHL is aware of the incident, but is not planning on taking any action against Keith."
