Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Blue Jackets vs Penguins

Rival Team: Pittsburgh Penguins

The Blue Jackets and Penguins don’t have a particularly strong rivalry, however, with the Jackets move to the Eastern Conference things have intensified between these two Metropolitan Division teams. The two teams met in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and you’ll find lots of Pens fans at Jackets games, which has helped sparked the flames in this budding rivalry. Get your tickets for Jackets-Penguins if you want to witness some intense hockey action at Nationwide Arena.

Blue Jackets vs Red Wings

Rival Team: Detroit Red Wings

Ohio and Michigan have an intense rivalry that extends beyond sports and that’s no different when it comes to hockey. While Blue Jackets-Red Wings may not have the history of Ohio State-Michigan, it still will draw plenty of fans from both teams. Make sure to get Jackets tickets when the Wings are in town for your chance to experience this fun rivalry.
