The Chicago Blackhawks, who finished the 2011 calendar year with the best record in the NHL, have a busy home schedule in January.
The Hawks are off to a fantastic start and have fans talking about another deep playoff run. Captain Jonathan Toews is among the league's leading goal scorers, and veteran Marian Hossa is among the league leaders in points. Superstar Patrick Kane is near the league lead in assists, while Patrick Sharp is right behind Toews in the league leaders in goals.
Chicago will also host division rival Columbus, San Jose, Buffalo, Florida and close the month's home schedule with a game against another divisional opponent, Nashville. Most of these teams are fighting for playoff position in the NHL as the new year begins.
When Florida comes to town, fans will recognize Brian Campbell, Kris Versteeg and Tomas Kopecky from the 2010 Stanley Cup champion team and Jack Skille from last year's Hawks' roster.
Tickets can be purchased to any of these great games through the Blackhawks home at Ticketmaster.com. However, as many of these games are already sold out, fans can check the secondary market for great seats at the Blackhawks TicketExchange as well.
