The Wizards lead the Chicago Bulls 2-0 in the first-round series, with Game 3 in Washington on Friday night.
Washington ranked 18th in attendance this season, and D.C. fans are notoriously late-arrivers.
Wizards owner Ted Leonsis addressed the issue on his blog Thursday, telling fans: “Don’t be too cool for school and stroll in at end of first period.”
Said guard Bradley Beal: “You definitely notice it. Especially when you first run onto the floor and there’s nobody there.”
The St. Louis Blues aren’t certain when captain David Backes, the player on the receiving end of the jarring hit that landed Seabrook a three-game suspension, will be ready.
Coach Ken Hitchcock said from a selfish standpoint it would be unfair if Seabrook returned before Backes to a white-knuckle first-round playoff series tied at two games apiece heading into Game 5 Friday night. Backes was not among a handful on the ice for an optional practice Thursday and Hitchcock was tight-lipped about his status.
