    Taking the ice in October this year will be an especially impressive lot of players with several very exciting teams. When you want to score cheap NHL tickets, you can credit Vivid Seats with making the assist! Those tickets will give you the chance to see some of the teams that made this spring one of the most interesting NHL playoffs in years. For example, when the President’s Cup winners, the Sharks, took on the weakest team in the first round of the playoffs, the Ducks, most people expected a sweep or maybe a 5 game series. But the Ducks shocked everyone with their 6 game series win, leading to a showdown with the Red Wings. Detroit won, but it took them 7 games, several games longer than expected. In the other conference, the Hurricanes had an exciting run all the way to the conference finals, beating the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils on the way. Meanwhile, the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins and the runners-up Detroit Red Wings appear to be returning somewhat stronger than they were last week, so it will be a great challenge for any team that wants to take them down a notch. The Chicago Blackhawks have improved offensively with the addition of Marian Hossa to their team. The Sharks will be hoping to follow through better than they did last season and the Canucks want to get deeper into the playoffs than they did this year, having been knocked out in the conference semifinals round. Any of these teams has a great chance and so do many others that there’s not space to name. This could be an amazingly exciting year in the NHL, so make sure that you catch as many games as you can!
