The Canucks, one of the most victorious teams over the last decade, enter 2013-14 in search of their sixth straight playoff appearance. Vancouver is also looking for its 14th consecutive winning season with an average ticket cost of $276, which is 24 percent higher than last year’s average of $223. There are many great games on the schedule, so you should get your Canucks tickets now for the following contests.
Hockey Night in Canada tops the list as the Canucks and Maple Leafs face off on Saturday, November 2. While the average ticket price is $551, you can get into Rogers Arena for $219 for this game.
Another great game will take place on January 7 when Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins come to town. Even though this game is on a Tuesday night, this will be your one and only chance to see the NHL’s best offense in Vancouver this season. The average ticket price is $365, but you can get into the stadium for a bargain at $129.
On Saturday, December 14, the defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins will be in Vancouver. There is definitely a history between these teams, dating back to the 2011 Stanley Cup final, and you can get into the stadium for $122. There is tremendous value for these tickets to see the Canucks seek revenge on the Bruins for depriving them of their first Stanley Cup. The average ticket price is $352, just 28 percent above the home average.
Early in the season, you can also enjoy this juicy matchup between two Canadian teams. The Canucks will face off against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, October 12. Just $141 will get you in the door to see these potential playoff teams. The average ticket price is $343 for this contest.
On November 23, the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks come to the Rain City. The get-in price to see Jonathan Toews and the Blackhawks is $125 with an average price of $300, only nine percent above the average home ticket price. You cannot afford to miss this showdown of two of the best teams in the conference.
The Canucks have enjoyed many successes in hockey recently, but the team cannot seem to ascend to the mountaintop and win the Stanley Cup. On the bright side, Vancouver is often in the postseason, so you have to gobble up Canucks tickets with the possibility that this could be the year.
