2015 Rangers vs. Capitals Playoff Tickets Are 108% More Expensive At Madison Square Garden Than Verizon Center
(4/28/15) It’s the Stanley Cup Playoffs, so naturally the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals will be playing each other. This will mark the fourth time in the past five seasons these two teams have met in the postseason. Only one other time did it not come in the opening round, a seven-game Rangers series win in 2012 in the semifinals. The Rangers had home ice advantage in that series, as they will in the one upcoming.
For the four possible games of the series to be held at Madison Square Garden, Rangers playoff tickets have a $692.22 average price on the secondary market. That is, of course, skewed by possible Games 5 and 7, which are significantly more expensive than the first two guaranteed games at the Garden. Game 3 has an average price of $741.72, while a potential Game 7 has an average price of $999.93. Games 1 and 2 have a combined average of $579.98.
If the recent playoff history between these two teams is any indication, this series could be going long. The past two series have gone seven games, with the Rangers having won both. That could also allow Washington to host three games in this series at the Verizon Center. While the price of Capitals playoff tickets is more expensive than they have been in the past three series against the Rangers, games at the Garden will still be 108% more expensive. The average price for Washington’s three potential home games is $332.18.
From the 2012 series, which also took place in the semifinals, prices will be 38% more expensive in New York, but just 3% more expensive in D.C.
During the regular season the Rangers and Capitals played four times. The Rangers won three with each of the four games being decided by at least two goals.
