The best fans in hockey* deserve a great view of the game, especially when the boys in blue are fighting their way toward the Stanley Cup. Unfortunately, the Scottrade Center only seats about 19,000 blue-bleeders. The rest of us are left to our own devices: friends with a good cable sports package, crowded bars with decent drink specials. Luckily, Wehrenberg Theatres has an alternative for those of us who can't afford post-season tickets -- Ronnies 20 (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; 314-843-4336) and St. Charles 18 (1830 South 1st Capitol Drive, St. Charles; 636-946-1862) will host free screenings of the games on Saturday, April 28, at 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 30, at 8 p.m. and Thursday, May 3, at 9 p.m. Wehrenberg will bust out the "bucket special" for the games, featuring four bottled beers and a refillable tub of popcorn for $18.
