Top NHL Games of the Week (2/16)
February 16, 2016
As the hunt for the Stanley Cup Playoffs continue, each week becomes increasingly more important in the NHL. The New York Rangers will look to further cement their strong positioning in the Eastern Conference this week but will need to do so over the Chicago Blackhawks, who are tied with the Dallas Stars for the best record in the Western Conference at 79 points each. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers will butt heads with the Philadelphia Flyers while the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks serve as a second Canadian stop on this week's top NHL games list.
Check out the complete list below, according to data provided by TicketIQ:
2/17/16 New York Rangers vs Chicago Blackhawks | Avg. Price: $308.34 | Get-in: $134
The Rangers have played exceptionally well over their last 10 games, going 7-2-1 over that time. They'll need a minor miracle to catch the Presidents' Trophy-bound Washington Capitals, who have already accumulated 84 points through 56 games this season. However, the Rangers are still warranting massive ticket demand on the secondary market, especially against the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks at Madison Square Garden this Wednesday. The average price for New York Rangers tickets against the Chicago Blackhawks is now $308.34 and the cheapest ticket available is listed for $134.
2/20/16 Toronto Maple Leafs vs Philadelphia Flyers | Avg. Price: $292.20 | Get-in: $142
The worst record in the NHL hasn't deterred the Maple Leafs from posting big ticket demand on the secondary market this season. The team has collected just 49 points through 55 games but is a frequent contributor to our top NHL games list each week. The Leafs host the Philadelphia Flyers at Air Canada Centre on Saturday, where Toronto Maple Leafs tickets on the secondary market average $292.20 and the get-in price starts from $142.
2/19/16 Calgary Flames vs Vancouver Canucks | Avg. Price: $239.81 | Get-in: $84
The Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary will be the hosting site for this week's third most expensive game on Friday between the Flames and Canucks. The average secondary market price for Calgary Flames tickets against the Canucks is now $239.81 and the get-in price is $84. The Flames hope to remain out of the cellar of the Pacific division and lead the Edmonton Oilers by three points. The Canucks own a three-point lead over Flames entering Tuesday.
2/20/16 Washington Capitals vs New Jersey Devils | Avg. Price: $178.13 | Get-in: $96
The NHL-leading Capitals will host the New Jersey Devils at Verizon Center in D.C. on Saturday night.

Washington Capitals tickets on the resale market against the Devils currently average $178.13 and the get-in price is $96. The Devils are neck-and-neck with the Islanders in the Metropolitan division with a respective point total of 65 and 66.

The average price for Edmonton Oilers tickets is now $169.24 and the get-in price is currently $40. The Avs find themselves in the middle of the Central division with 62 points and will look to lock down a playoff spot in the Western Conference through the final six weeks of play.
