    This is by far the highest I've ever seen a round 1 ticket go for. It's the perfect storm. Team coming off a playoffs of no success, raise in playoff prices, team coming off two huge wins with a chance to win the series, 8 PM on a Saturday night which is the perfect time slot to go to a game for most people, a big name opponent, etc. Still though, the prices are nuts. Games like tonight are why rounds 2 and 3 take a hit in resale prices. People blow their money in round 1.

    I just saw the prices. My friend went up to Boston a few years ago for a cup final and got a ticket from a tout for roughly what you'd pay to get in to MSG tonight.

    Perfect storm indeed. It's actually a good thing we are the road team for round two...essentially doubles the time before the next home game allowing for interest and bank accounts to renew. Also, 3 home games per round (as opposed to 4) means there is more money available to be spent on the next series.

    There are still pairs available for round 2 from the box office. The number keeps dwindling, but they are there.

    Ticket prices have sky-rocketed the past 4 years if you are talking about their 2013 appearance. Even more so if you are talking about 2011. Other factors, did he buy close to puck drop? Was it someone outside the arena selling a single? All play into the pricing.

    Crooked ushers will be making a killing. I remember in 2014 people were paying one or two bills to a guy who would give them a ticket xerox with a small marking on it and told to go to a specific gate & usher. The usher would identify the mark, scan the ticket, and let the person in even if it scanned invalid and they could go watch standing room. I have no idea if it's still going on but at these prices there's got to be people on the take

    Something similar (or exact same thing you're taking about) got blown up during the 2015 playoffs. 400's behind the goal were 2 rows deep from what I heard.

    There's plenty of piggy back on ticketmaster if you want to go that route

    Ace before the game in 2013. In 2010 he got at the box office day of the game.

    Question for the people that know the ticket market well - Just in case they make it should I buy conference finals tickets in Washington now? It's under 200 for games 1 & 2, you figure it would go up if the Rangers are in it right?

    I'd be looking to go myself but from past experience the ticket market in DC never really gets crazy. You should be able to get tickets from ticketmaster if it gets to that, I guess it depends on stubhub pricing versus box office

    I'll take a stab at this. If anyone is selling any tickets, please let me know via PM. Very interested in Games 3 and 4 (potentially Game 6, if the series deems so).

    Looking for 2 for tonight in the $150-$200 per range. StubHub has come down a decent amount so hopefully something's out there. PM me with what you have. Thanks!
