The Calgary Flames have failed to make it to the postseason since 2009, but 2015 may be a year of awakening for the fourth place team in the Pacific division. With the eighth spot in the Western Conference standings through 46 games, the Flames own a 25-18-3 record and will play one more game against the Ducks Wednesday before heading into the NHL All-Star break.
The Flames have won four in a row heading into Wednesday night’s game against the Ducks and will ready to host the Maple Leafs as their most expensive remaining home game this season. Toronto heads to the Scotiabank Saddledome on March 13, when the average secondary price for Flames vs Maple Leafs tickets is $520.78. The get-in price for the game starts at $214.
The Buffalo Sabres will be the cheapest remaining home game in Calgary on January 27. The average price for Flames vs Sabres tickets is $114.29 and the get-in price is listed at $31 on the secondary market. The Sabres own the worst record in the Eastern Conference at 14-30-3, allowing average secondary price to fall when they head to the Scotiabank Saddledome later this month.
If the Flames can remain relevant enough in the West through the second half of the season, there’s a good chance playoff hockey will return to Calgary this April. They’ll need to be consistent, however, as the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings look to make a push out of the basement of the West and cement a postseason berth.
