STREAKING TO A HALT? In Vancouver, Ben Kuzma noted the Canucks posted their 140th consecutive sellout on Saturday, but with the team “playing around the .500 level -– and struggling to score goals –- empty seats have been popping up.” Four hours before Thursday’s home game against the Ducks, fans “could still purchase prime tickets”; Ticketmaster had a pair of lower-bowl center-ice seats or two blueline seats for C$179.25 each. Also, tickets on the secondary market are “often sold below face value.” A local ticket broker said, “It’s not a hot ticket, given the way they are playing. But it could also be the (snowy) weather and trouble getting to games” (Vancouver PROVINCE, 12/3).
