Watching ice hockey live is so much better than watching it at home on a television screen. The glass rattles loudly with each heavy body check into the boards and the puck is much easier to follow live and in person than it is on a tiny screen. Fans scream and cheer, and celebrations are noisy siren- or horn-filled eruptions of joy. You definitely get your money's worth when you purchase ice hockey tickets.
The National Hockey League (NHL) was founded in 1917 in Canada. Today, it has 30 teams, 23 in the United States and 7 in Canada. Ice hockey is especially popular in Canada, where it is its national winter sport. In the United States, demand for hockey season tickets and regular ice hockey tickets continues to grow, although a devastating season-long lockout by owners in 2004 negatively affected the sport's popularity for awhile.
New star players have also brought renewed interest in the sport. The rivalry between the Washington, DC Capitals' mega-star Alex Ovechkin and the Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby especially brought a lot of attention to the sport at a time when it needed it the most. Even non-hockey fans came to know who these two stars were.
In many cities, especially ones where their teams have won an NHL Stanley Cup, hockey season tickets are now in big demand. Hockey season tickets are also very popular in Canada where corporations often buy up blocks so that they can take out their clients for a night of bone-crunching, extremely fast entertainment. Even in cities whose teams have not won the Stanley Cup, like Washington, DC, tickets can be very difficult to obtain.
Although, it may seem in cities where hockey is especially popular that it may not be possible to purchase ice hockey tickets, you can always find a great inventory of cheap seats for all of the NHL games here. We even have a great selection of cheap tickets for mega rivalries such as for Pittsburgh Penguins versus Philadelphia Flyers games, which typically sell out very quickly.

In addition, we carry cheap ice hockey tickets for big events like the Winter Classic, which is quickly becoming as popular as the Stanley Cup. You can also find cheap tickets to the NHL's annual All-star game here, as well.
If you've never been to an ice hockey game, then you should definitely purchase some hockey tickets to see what all the fuss is about. This is a hard hitting, fast paced game that is always entertaining to watch live. As some people like to say, it is the "coolest" sport in the world!
