Rivalries will be renewed in the NHL this week as some of the league’s top talent face off over the weekend. The New York Rangers will host two of this week’s top-priced NHL games while the Flames, Penguins and Wild also appear on the list for home games. On the heels of a six-game win streak, the Rangers have seen spirits rise in Madison Square Garden alongside increasing ticket prices on the secondary market. Below are the week’s five most expensive games:
12/27 - New Jersey Devils at New York Rangers | Avg. Price: $508.26 | Get-in: $129
The Hudson River rivalry will write another chapter in its illustrious history this Saturday when the Devils travel to Midtown Manhattan to take on the Rangers. The average price for Rangers vs Devils tickets is $508.26 and get-in price starts at $129 on the secondary market. Despite the relatively slow start for each team, secondary ticket prices remain high for their weekend showdown at The Garden.
12/27 - Edmonton Oilers at Calgary Flames | Avg. Price: $357.20 | Get-in: $127
The Flames welcome the Oilers to the Scotiabank Saddledome in the week’s second most expensive game. The average secondary price for Flames vs Oilers tickets is $357.20 and get-in price is $127. The Oilers own the worst record in the NHL at 7-20-7 and have scored just 21 goals in 34 games this season. Their trip to Calgary will elicit big prices on the secondary market, however, as the 17-15-3 Flames host the bumbling Oilers on Saturday night.
12/27 - Washington Capitals at Pittsburgh Penguins | Avg. Price: $337.64 | Get-in: $137
With top honors in the Metropolitan Division, the Pittsburgh Penguins set to host the Capitals at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh this Saturday. Penguins vs Capitals tickets see a secondary average of $337.64 and get-in price of $137. The Penguins own a 22-6-4 record at the beginning of the week while the Capitals trail significantly at 16-10-6. With Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby skating against each other, ticket prices for games between the Capitals and Penguins have risen considerably in recent years.
12/23 - Washington Capitals at New York Rangers | Avg. Price: $315.84 | Get-in: $110
Prior to their trip to Pittsburgh, the Washington Capitals head to Madison Square Garden to take on the Rangers on Tuesday night. The average secondary price for Rangers vs Capitals tickets is $315.84 while get-in price starts at $110. The teams have met eight times in playoff history, with each taking four series in their 36-year history of competing against one another.
12/27 - Winnipeg Jets at Minnesota Wild | Avg. Price: $300.54 | Get-in: $125
The Wild will battle the Jets at Xcel Energy Center on Saturday night and rounds off this week’s top-priced games in the NHL. The average price for Wild vs Jets tickets is $300.54 and get-in price is listed at $125. The two teams have fought in the middle of the Central Division all season long, where the Jets sit in fourth at 17-10-7 and the Wild begin the week in fifth place at 16-12-3.
