Those $25,000 tickets are first-row seats up against the glass at center ice. Several more individual tickets are going for five figures.

The cheapest standing-room only tickets — face value $140 — are selling for more than $800. Most are selling for more than $1,000.

You can do a little better on vividseats.com, where the cheapest standing room tickets are going for $583. Lower-level seats on that website are approaching $10,000.

According to vividseats, the median ticket price for Monday’s game is $3,437. The get-in price for standing room only is $676, while the lowest price for seats starts at $1,090.

If Tampa Bay forces a Game 7, the median price is currently at $1,098 with a get-in price of $480.

The Blackhawks have won two Stanley Cups since 2010, but neither clinching victory came on home ice. In 1938, when the Hawks won at home, there were just eight teams in the NHL.
