The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the hottest tickets in town, and fans will have their chance to grab seats to one of 41 home games at the United Center on Monday when the team releases single-game tickets to the general public.
The tickets, which go on sale at 10am, can be purchased on www.chicagoblackhawks.com or by calling 800-745-3000. All games scheduled for Monday-Saturday will be played at 7:30pm in the upcoming season, while Sunday games can vary between 11:30am, 2:00pm, and 6:00pm starts depending on national television.
For those fans looking for tickets to the biggest games on the calendar (read: the ones that will sell out fastest), here are five dates to target:
12/3: vs. St. Louis Blues
The Blues are always a big hit at the United Center, but after the teams' playoff series last year, these seats will be even harder to come by.
2/15: vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
Last year's Stadium Series game at Soldier Field was a huge success, and Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and company always draw a big crowd wherever they play.
2/18: vs. Detroit Red Wings
The Hawks' biggest rival will once again only make one trip to the United Center, so it's a safe bet that these tickets will sell quickly.
2/22: vs. Boston Bruins
The Bruins wrap up an incredible week of opponents at the United Center when they come to town for a rematch of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.
3/30: vs. Los Angeles Kings
It seems crazy, but this Western Conference Final rematch is the only time that the two teams will play in Chicago during the regular season.
Now, if fans are looking for tickets that probably won't sell as quickly, but should result in some really compelling games anyway, then we have that list for you too:
10/28: vs. Anaheim Ducks
Ryan Kesler and Ryan Getzlaf will team up to give the Ducks some incredible depth up the middle of the ice, and Corey Perry is a perennial Rocket Richard Trophy contender, so this should be a game with a ton of goals scored.
11/9: vs. San Jose Sharks
The Sharks are a team that is perenially a contender, but they could look a lot different when the two teams square off at the UC in this early season matchup.
11/11: vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
The Bolts aren't a team that people necessarily have on their bucket list to see, but with Steven Stamkos leading the way, this squad could be primed for big things in the coming year.
11/16: vs. Dallas Stars
One of three matchups this season between the Hawks and Stars at the United Center. Dallas is a team that has really strengthened its roster, and could very well make a run at Chicago and St. Louis as the top dog in the Central Division.
1/6: vs. Colorado Avalanche
The Avalanche is a team that no one can get a bead on. Will they be last season's playoff darlings, or will they crash back to Earth? Either way, it should be a fun game to watch.
