Does anyone have Rangers and/or Devils season tickets that would be willing to purchase a couple of extra tickets for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals? I am coming to the East Coast for Game 5 but figure that there will not be any General Public Ticket sales since it's the Cup. I have a buddy that lives out there so he can meet you prior to Game 5 to get tix and pay for them or I will be coming in to town the Thursday before game 5 and can meet up. I need 2-3 tix. If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it.

A couple of my friends have tix, they each have a set of two. 1 pair of mid-ice a couple rows behind the window and the other is section 112 seats 11/12. 

What's your budget? I know they're not cheap..

If Jersey wins, you shouldn't have a problem getting them scalped, off Stubhub, or EBay, but you'll be paying a premium.

If Rangers win, GL w/ that man.

I am expecting them to be pretty pricey. I'm hoping for no more than $500 a tix, but depending on prices I can adjust. I don't need excellent seats, but something decent would be nice. I'm not sure what the perice difference is between LA and NY/NJ, but LA had tix for WCF going for between $275 and $500 for lower level tix. Nose bleeds were $115. I also expect those prices to increase since it is the Cup.

I actually enjoy being behind a net over being center ice if on lower level, but realize beggers can't be choosers.

Right now the cheapest seats in the house for game if it's at MSG are going for about 700 a ticket on stubhub.

My suggestion as a relatively experienced secondary market ticket buyer is for you to wait. MSG doesn't offer season ticket holders extra tickets, all they have the right to is first dibs on their own seats at whatever face price is set at. So that realistically leaves you with the secondary market as your only shot.

Like I said, right now the tickets online are absurdly priced, as they were two weeks before the ECF as well. From my experience, you're best off waiting until the series is actually set in stone, then wait til gameday and buy tickets on Stubhub. You won't find any steals since it's the cup finals, but if you look through all the sections in the arena chances are you'll find somebody selling tickets day of the game as a perishable item (seller keeps lowering his price until the very last moment because he finds out the day before or day of that he can't make it to the game due to schedule concerns).

Just to prove the contrast, go on Stubhub right now and compare the prices by section for tonight's game 5 and a hypothetical game 7. Granted, game 7 will be more expensive than the prices of today's game, but they'll DEFINITELY drop right around this time of day the day of the game. Just my two cents, it's your best shot at finding a "reasonable" ticket.

Excellent advice and much appreciated Raems.

Was planning on using that as a last stitch effort. Just not sure if I would come out to NY without tix. May stay in LA and catch a game if I can't get tix before hand.

Thanks Dennis.

Can't pass up this once in a lifetime opportunity. First Stanley Cup Finals game and first MSG (hopefully) event.

USC - First off...

Now to the tix... You can scope out Stubhub NOW and see if there are any seats available from STH's (season ticket holders). If you make a purchase for a game that is not played (team eliminated) then you just get your money back. StubHub is good with that. I sold World Series tixs once and had to take the tickets back because the A's lost the 2nd round.

Some people that list then NOW on StubHub already know they don't want to go and sometimes you can land a good deal... but I agree with raems... the best prices are closer to gametime BUT there are also less inventory to choose from at that time so It's up to you to decide.

I wish I could attend one of these upcoming games however that is not possible. I'm in the SF Bay Area and looked into Kings season tickets two years ago but decided against them because I can't go if I fail to sell them for a game... to far away. I still have the offer mailing they sent to me for this season...  NOW of course I could kick myself since they are in the SCFinals... Oh Well... I'll watch on TV.

Good Luck and have fun USCDieHard...

LET'S GO KINGS...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BOTH NJ and NYRags fans should already have thier own personal playoff ticket strips already for all rounds of the playoffs... That how it worked when I had NHL season tix before.

Thanks for the info MarchMadness. Any chance you want to sell Game 5 tix at face value (or minimal markup)?
