Top NHL Games of the Week (2/9)
February 9, 2016
One week removed from the All-Star break, and the hunt for the postseason continues in the NHL. The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks will appear on this week's top games list when they host the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday and Dallas Stars on Thursday. The New Jersey Devils will also make an appearance this week when they retire Martin Brodeur's jersey prior to Tuesday night's game against the Edmonton Oilers.
View the complete list of this week's top-priced games below, according to TicketIQ:
2/13/16 Chicago Blackhawks vs Anaheim Ducks | Avg. Price: $382.26 | Get-in: $138
A Western Conference Finals rematch will touch down at United Center this weekend when the Blackhawks welcome the Ducks on Saturday night. While the Blackhawks have streaked to own the best record in the conference, the Ducks have slowly climbed out of the hole they dug for themselves earlier this season and sit just two points out of second place in the Pacific Division. It is no surprise that this weekend's game is garnering big demand, then, as Chicago Blackhawks tickets at United Center against the Ducks currently average $382.26 and the cheapest ticket available is $138.
2/09/16 New Jersey Devils vs Edmonton Oilers (Martin Brodeur Jersey Retirement) | Avg. Price: $328.04 | Get-in: $144
Future Hall of Fame goalie and a key piece to the Devils' three Stanley Cup-run between 1994 and 2003, Martin Brodeur will be honored in style before puck drop at Prudential Center Tuesday night. Brodeur will join the likes of Scott Niedermayer, Ken Daneyko and Scott Stevens as the only players in franchise history to have their number hang from the rafters. New Jersey Devils tickets on the secondary market against the Oilers on Tuesday now average $328.04 and the get-in price is $144.
2/12/16 New York Rangers vs Los Angeles Kings | Avg. Price: $310.58 | Get-in: $127
It was a bittersweet weekend for the New York Rangers, who took decisive victories over divisional foes in the Flyers and Devils but saw captain Ryan McDonaugh go down with a concussion after being sucker-punched by the Flyers' Wayne Simmonds. The Blueshirts will host the Los Angeles Kings at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, where the average price for New York Rangers tickets on the secondary market is $310.58. The cheapest ticket for the game is now $127. The Kings begin a lengthy East Coast trip that will have them play seven road games over the next 11 days.
2/11/16 Chicago Blackhawks vs Dallas Stars (Teuvo Teravainen Bobblehead Night) | Avg. Price: $301.97 | Get-in: $121
The Blackhawks will celebrate the rise of 21-year-old Teuvo Teravainen with his own bobblehead night against the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. The Finnish star has had a strong year for the Blackhawks, posting nine goals and 13 assists as the third line right winger alongside Phillip Danault and Andrew Desjardins. Blackhawks tickets against the Stars average $301.97 and the get-in price is $121 on the secondary market.
2/13/16 Vancouver Canucks vs Toronto Maple Leafs | Avg. Price: $264.72 | Get-in: $105
Rounding off this week's top games list is a battle for the Great White North between the Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs at Rogers Arena Saturday.

Vancouver Canucks tickets at Rogers Arena this Saturday now average $264.72 and the cheapest ticket available is $105.
