With High Expectations, Rangers Playoff Tickets At Four-Year High

Apr 11 2014, 1:53pm CDT | by

If the NHL playoffs started today, The New York Rangers would face off against long-time rivals Philadelphia Flyers. It would be the tenth time that the two divisional rivals have met in the playoffs. It’s been 17 years since the last time the two teams met in the playoffs. As a result of this potential match-up as well as high expectations, Rangers Playoff tickets are more expensive than they’ve been in the last four years. At an average price on the secondary market of $426, tickets at Madison Square Garden are 243% more expensive than Flyers playoff tickets for their round one match-up. Every round one game at Wells Fargo has a get-in price of under $100, with the most expensive game being game three, for which prices start at $73. Right now, the cheapest ticket for a home Rangers playoff game is $134, which is for game three. Below is an overview of the last four years of Rangers playoff ticket prices.
