NEW YORK – As the Los Angeles Kings surged ahead to a 3-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, the spirits of New York Rangers fans sagged. There was a deflated feeling at Madison Square Garden on Monday night, and that lack of enthusiasm has apparently extended to the secondary ticket market.
Via TiqIQ, a secondary market ticket seller, the trends look like this for the Rangers’ remaining home games and their average ticket prices and “get in” prices (in parentheses):
After Winning Eastern Conference Title
- Game 4: $2,419.57 ($1,079)
- Game 6: $2,737.35 ($1,573)
After Game 3 Loss To LA Kings
- Game 4: $1,594.92 ($474) (-34.08% & -56.07%)
- Game 6: $2,774.86 ($1,604) (+1.37% & +1.97%)
The primary numbers here are the average ticket prices on the secondary market, according to TiqIQ. The “get in” price listed next to them are the lowest ticket price available on the secondary market for the game.
Before Game 3, the average price was $1,996.42. After Game 3, those tickets dropped to $1,594.92, which is a 50.37-percent plummet.
More incredibly, the least expensive ticket on the secondary market ($474) is actually cheaper than the lowest face value ticket that was listed on Ticketmaster ($484.45).
Game 4 is Wednesday night. Tickets, it seems, are available.
