With the World Series ending (congratulations to the Kansas City Royals) a delayed number of fans will begin paying attention to the NHL, which is just over 10 games into the 2015-16 regular season.
For those missing the opening stretch, the Montreal Canadiens were on the heels of history after starting a perfect 9-0-0 (NHL record was two teams reaching 10 wins to start the season) but the train stopped there. Sitting at 11-2 through 13 games, the Canadiens will go on to prove their hot start was not a fluke. In addition to the Canadiens, the Eastern Conference dominates this week’s most expensive NHL tickets on the secondary market according to TiqIQ.com. Of the 10 teams involved in the top five games, only the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers hail from the Western Conference.
