2014 Price Notes
- The cumulative averages (taking into account all tickets resold since they first became available at the start of the playoffs) for Games 1-3 are as follows: $563 for Game 1, $667 for Game 2 and $1,656 for Game 3. So while the Game 3 average is likely to finish slightly lower than where it sits now, it will be nearly three times the average for Game 1.
- We estimate that $9.6M worth of Game 3 tickets have been exchanged on the secondary market, the most we've ever seen for a single NHL or NBA Finals game. The high for a World Series game is an estimated $11.7M for Game 6 in Boston last year. The figure for the Super Bowl this past year at MetLife Stadium was an estimated $38.3M.
- An interesting note on the markets for Games 1 and 2 in LA: We saw resale prices fall below face value for both games out west in the final 24 hours before puck drop. The last-minute dip was sharpest for Game 1, as the average price on gameday was just $425 and many tickets traded for less than $200. Anecdotally, I've heard that the relatively early start times in LA contributed to the lackluster demand there. Needless to say, we're not close to seeing Game 3 prices fall anywhere close to face value.
- All told, demand has been surprisingly steady for Game 3 tickets, even with the Rangers facing a 2-0 deficit. I might have expected a sharper decline in prices yesterday after the Game 2 loss, but at least for now, Rangers fans haven't given up on this team and are still willing to pay record-high prices to see a Stanley Cup Final at the Garden.
- The average price paid for a resale ticket to Game 3 yesterday was $1,640. That's about equal to the going rate we saw early last week. Demand had peaked mid-week, however, as fans paid more than $1,912 per ticket on Wednesday and Thursday combined, so the average price has fallen 14% in that time.
- The cheapest ticket available is a good deal cheaper now than it was last week. The current get-in price for Game 3 is $812, down 22% from $1,046 a week ago. That $812 will only get you an obstructed view from the 400 level, though; unobstructed tickets start at $900 and up.
- Game 3 and 4 in NY are the most expensive opening Finals games (meaning Games 1 and 2 or 3 and 4) we've recorded at any venue since we started tracking the resale market in the 2009-10 season. The previous high was set in Vancouver in 2011 at $858 per ticket for Games 1 and 2 of the Canucks-Bruins Finals. They're also easily the most expensive tickets we've seen for any event at Madison Square Garden. Game 3 tickets are averaging $1,696 each on the secondary market, and Game 4 tickets are going for $1,818 apiece, far exceeding the previous high of $1,026 per ticket for the 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief.
- One of the most interesting, late-breaking developments in the market today is that the Kings have released face-value tickets for Game 1 as of this morning (including the cheap seats at $349 a pop and lowers in the corner for $629 each, before fees), but similar seats are actually available for less than face value on the secondary market! Those upper-level tickets start at $322 on SeatGeek, and you can grab two seats in Section 117, Row 15 (same $629 face value as those seats pulled on Ticketmaster) for $550.
- Meanwhile, there's absolutely no chance tickets are going to dip anywhere close to face value for Games 3, 4 and 6 at MSG. Most face values for the Rangers' home games ranged from $453 to $725; only rinkside seats and some lower-level seats with club access were originally priced higher than that (anywhere from $1,099 to $2,413 each). The current get-in prices of the three games at MSG -- these are for those upper-level tickets originally priced at $453 -- are $986 for Game 3, $1,069 for Game 4 and $1,686 for Game 6.
- By average ticket price, here's how each game of the series shakes out. You'll notice that prices for even the first two games at MSG exceed those for a possible Game 7 at Staples Center: Game 1 (LA): $644
Game 2 (LA): $799
Game 3 (NY): $1,696
Game 4 (NY): $1,818
Game 5 (LA): $1,071
Game 6 (NY): $2,296
Game 7 (NY): $1,349
- Another fun note on the market for the games at MSG: You can buy a 2014-15 season ticket at several NHL venues for less than the cost of one ticket to a Stanley Cup Finals game in New York. Looking to a couple of the Rangers' and Kings' neighbors for examples, Anaheim Ducks season tickets start at $720 for the full season, and you can lock in your seat to every Islanders home game for $742.50 ($16.50 per ticket x 45 home games, including preseason).
2013 Stanley Cup Playoff Team - New York Rangers
The New York Rangers made their stand and managed to qualify for the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist helped keep them in games with consistently spectacular play, the kind of thing Rangers fans have grown accustomed to during his heralded career. While offseason acquisition Rick Nash helped power the New York Rangers offense, the Blueshirts still found themselves needing something as the shortened regular season came to a close. So, they dealt Marion Gaborik to Columbus at the trade deadline, looking to fortify their depth and grit with a mix of other forwards. Coach John Tortarella is notorious for implementing a grinding, defensive style that can wear on his own players as much as their opponents. The Rangers are surely hoping fresh legs and an aggressive mindset will give their playoff opponents something to think about.
But what the first-round opponent Washington Capitals will be thinking about most often is how to overcome the talented Lundqvist's ability to takeover a series and steal multiple games for a sometimes underwhelming New York Rangers offense. One key weakness in front of Lundqvist is the long-term injury of defenseman Marc Staal, who took a hard slapshot to the eye earlier this year. While Staal attempts to regain full, clear vision and get back on the ice, the Rangers will try to compensate against the talents of MVP-candidate Alexander Ovechkin. This Washington Capitals team, like the Rangers, once faced the threat of not making the playoffs. Because the Caps play in a weaker division, they managed to secure a higher seed and home ice advantage at the Verizon Center in round one. The New York Rangers don't fear 2013 Stanley Cup Playoff games on the road, though; the best way to silence a crowd is shutting down an offense, and the Rangers have a big advantage in that department in round one of the NHL Playoffs and beyond.
New York Rangers Stanley Cup Playoff Opponent
The Rangers finished in a tightly-packed back half of the 2013 NHL Playoffs' Eastern Conference seeding. While they will probably not have home-ice advantage in any round, they can still rely on the Madison Square Garden crowd to provide energy three games/series.
