NHL FanDemand: Hottest Games this Season
1. Winter Classic: Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals, 1/1/11: $604.00
- One thing is on hockey fans list of New Years Resolutions: getting tickets to the Winter Classic. This game will be a spectacle, with two of the most exciting players matching up against one another: Canadian golden boy Sidney Crosby vs. the Russian Alex Ovechkin. These teams will likely meet in the playoff’s, as well, so a lot is on the line for this New Year’s Day game.
2. Montreal Canadiens @ Toronto Maple Leafs, 4/9/11: $403.00
- This intense intra-Canadian rivalry is definitely the biggest in Canada, if not all of the NHL. Tickets are going to probably increase as we get closer to this one. The Leafs look good so far this year, and the Canadiens are 3-1-1 despite the absence of their star player, Andrei Markov.
3. Chicago Blackhawks @ Vancouver Canucks, 11/20/10: $350.00
- Another heated rivalry, Vancouver-ites will pack Rogers Arena when the defending champs come across the border. The Hawks are one up on the Canucks already, with a 2-1 victory this month. Can goalie Roberto Luongo help his team bounce back and take the re-match?
4. Pittsburgh Penguins @ Toronto Maple Leafs, 2/26/11: $350.00
- The Leafs host the Crosby and the Penguins in February, and may put Canadians in a tough spot. Deep down, they must be cheering for Sidney Crosby, who hit the gold-winning medal goal for his country last February in the Olympics. But in the end, Toronto will want a win here. Look for an exciting atmosphere inside the Air Canada Centre.
5. Tampa Bay Lightning @ Vancouver Canucks, 12/11/10: $349.00
- Interesting to see this game among the FanDemand ranks, considering the fact that Lightning tickets are the lowest in the league. But Canucks tickets are always a hot item, and every game for them is a must win. The Lightning will try to put a few in the net, past one of the better goalies in the league, Roberto Luongo.
6. Boston Bruins @ Montreal Canadiens, 1/8/11: $345.00
- The Bruins take on the Havs this January in what is the 6th hottest game this season. Goalie Tim Thomas has looked good for the Bruins so far this year, but Montreal will threaten early with their potent offense.
7. Pittsburgh Penguins @ Toronto Maple Leafs, 3/2/11: $330.00
8. Chicago Blackhawks @ Toronto Maple Leafs, 3/5/11: $330.00
9. Toronto Maple Leafs @ Vancouver Canucks, 12/18/10: $329.00
10. Montreal Canadiens @ Toronto Maple Leafs, 12/11/10: $318.00
