Sidney Crosby scored a hat trick in his second straight home game last night in the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 win over the Atlanta Thrashers. The Penguins extended their win streak to 8 straight and are the hottest team in the NHL after starting out the season with a mediocre 9-8-2 record.  Along with their 8-game win streak, the Penguins ticket prices have been on the rise since mid-November and are currently ranked #1 in our NHL Ticket Prices & Rankings with an average ticket price of $222 over the last week.

One of the most anticipated games on the Penguins schedule is the 2011 Winter Classic on New Year’s Day when the Washington Capitals will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins at Heinz Field.
