Looking at the Kings top games of December

The Kings will play a total of 11 games during the remainder of December, having gone 2-1 through the first three.  The reigning Stanley Cup Champions will look to use December as a month to improve their record of 14-8-5. The Kings current record is slightly lower than the first 27 games of last season, as they began with a record of 16-7-4.  Los Angeles has excelled at the Staples Center this season, with a home record of 11-4-1. However, they have endured disappointing results while traveling as they have an away record of 2-4-2.  The Kings will also use December to figure out how to generate more offensive firepower, as they rank 16th in goals per game (2.6) and 20th on the power play (16.7%) overall in the NHL.  Their defense and goaltending has carried the team through the early part of this season, as they ranking 3rd in goals against (2.6) and 8th on the penalty kill (84.4%).  The performance so far this season is reflective of the secondary average price for Kings tickets in the month of December.
12/9/14 @ Buffalo | Avg. Ticket Price: $40.00 | Get-in Price: $10.00
The least expensive game this December will be when Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings visit the First Niagara Center to take on the Buffalo Sabres.  The Kings will face a weak Sabres team who currently sit in last place of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.  Buffalo ranks at the bottom of the NHL with an overall ranking of 30th for goals per game (1.6) and 25th for goals against (3.1).  The Kings leading scorer Tyler Toffoli will look to exploit this and help jumpstart a roster of seasoned playoff veterans.  Kings tickets from ScoreBig for this game will be below their December season average, and currently sit at an average price of $37.00 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $10.00.  Ticket prices have decreased 34% in the past seven days.
12/29/15 @ Calgary | Avg. Price: $281.27 | Get-in Price: $97.00
The Kings most expensive game this December will be when the team travels to the McMahon Arena to take on the Calgary Flames.  The Kings will face a tough challenge as the Flames have gotten off to a good start behind the combined goaltending efforts of veteran Jonas Hiller and Karri Ramo. Young forward Sean Monahan has gotten off to the most successful scoring campaign of his career. LA Kings vs Calgary Flames tickets for this game will be above the December average, as they currently sit at a price of $278.17 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $97.00.  Prices for this game have increased 3% in the last seven days.
December will be a crucial month for Los Angeles. At its conclusion, they will have played half their schedule.  If they fail to generate more offense, they could be looking at a dangerous situation in terms of their playoff hopes.
