The entire hockey community was relieved when an agreement was reached in January to end the NHL lockout, and the Chicago Blackhawks organization was no different. In 2010, after winning the club’s first Stanley Cup since 1961, popular Blackhawks players including Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharpe and Duncan Keith, saw parts of the roster torn down and two straight playoff runs end abruptly in the first round. Nothing washes away that disappointment like the hope at the beginning of a new season, and Chicago Blackhawks tickets – especially those at home in the United Center – offered players and fans alike a chance to start off on a fresh sheet of ice.
And start fresh they did. The Blackhawks managed to tally a point in the first 24 straight games to open the season, an NHL record. Combined with the end of their 2012 regular season, they had a 30-game point streak, best for second all time. Given the reduced length of the 2013 schedule, the streak has put Chicago in prime playoff position. Even with the back-to-back losses that ended the streak this weekend, the Blackhawks have already managed to make 2013 another positive step forward for an organization that’s often fighting for attention in its own busy sports town. There’s still half a season left to get Chicago Blackhawks tickets and see this historic team for yourself!
