As NHL Playoff Picture Forms, Jets, Wild and Bruins Among Top-Priced NHL Postseason Hopefuls


Just two weeks remain in the NHL regular season, and several teams are battling for playoff contention. In the Eastern Conference, the Capitals and Senators cling to both Wild Card spots while the Bruins trail closely behind. The Wild and Kings own the two Wild Card slots in the West, though both are still capable of claiming higher seeds before season end. With tight-knit hockey abound as the calendar flips to April, here’s a look at how each postseason hopeful fares on the secondary ticket market over its final regular season home games.

Washington Capitals | Verizon Center | Avg. Price: $141.93

Arguably the tightest division in the NHL is the Metropolitan, which has seen the Rangers, Islanders and Penguins all own first-place honors over the course of the season. With the Rangers cementing a comfortable lead atop the Metro, the Isles and Penguins will battle it out for home ice in the playoffs in the second and third-place spots.

The Capitals sit just three games behind the Penguins, however, and will look to make waves over the next two weeks. The team will play five more home games in the regular season, and the average price for Washington Capitals tickets on TicketIQ is $141.93.
