Starting Five: The to-do list for sports fans this week.

April 08, 2012|By Brian Moore, RedEye

ATTEND

Cubs vs. Milwaukee

7:05 p.m. Tuesday, Wrigley Field

Fans can't use the excuse that going to the Friendly Confines is too expensive anymore. With the way the Cubs have played for the past couple seasons, cheap tickets are plentiful online. For Tuesday's matchups, they are going for as low as $2.50.

WATCH

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Blackhawks at Phoenix, Game 1

9 p.m. Thursday, NBC Sports Network

For the fourth consecutive season, the Blackhawks are in the playoffs, searching for another Stanley Cup. This time they'll have to go through Phoenix, which means some late nights for fans. There'll be a lot of coffee being consumed in Chicago on Friday morning.

WATCH

Bulls vs. Miami

7 p.m. Thursday, TNT

The way this season is shaping up, this game just might be the one that decides the best record in the Eastern Conference. Even if it's not, a Bulls-Heat matchup is one of the most intense and enjoyable around. And by all means, if you can actually afford to be there, go for it.

ATTEND

Wolves vs. Milwaukee Admirals

7 p.m. Saturday, Allstate Arena

Another hot hockey team in Chicago, the Wovles are first in the AHL's Western Conference's Midwest division and also will be heading to the playoffs after the regualr season ends Sunday. Don't be that guy that boycotts them just because they are affiliated with the Vancouver Canucks or you'll miss some good hockey.

ATTEND

Fire vs. Houston Dynamo

6 p.m. Sunday, Toyota Park

Offseason pickup Arne Friedrich makes his home debut for the Fire in just the team's fourth MLS game in a month. But it's Fire forward Dominic Oduro who's on fire this season, scoring the team's only two goals this season and leading the team with eight shots on goal.
