About 50 seats in the 5,371-seat arena were left as of Wednesday for Friday night's tilt. You can bet those have been gobbled up, and it's a safe wager the bulk of the 750 standing-room tickets are gone as well.
St. Cloud drew anncounced crowds of more than 6,000 three times in a span of eight days last season, according to the same article. You can bet it will be more of the same this weekened.
