New York Rangers Game 7 Ticket Prices On Secondary Market Drop As Game Approaches

It’s gameday and New York Rangers fans are holding their breath in anticipation for Game 7 tonight at Madison Square Garden against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

After being down 3-1 in the series against the Washington Capitals, Rangers fans familiarity with the win-or-go-home situation is stronger than they would like it to be. In any case, attending Game 7 at Madison Square Garden on Friday night is turning out to be quite the financial commitment for anyone looking for last-minute tickets on the secondary market.

Game 7 Rangers tickets have an average ticket price of $875.81, with a get-in price of $398. This is actually encouraging news, as on May 27, the average ticket price was as high as $1,330.39, according to RazorGator.com. In comparison to the Western Conference Game 7 matchup between the Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks, the average ticket price is just $394.22, with a get-in price of $148. Madison Square Garden parking starts at $14 for Game 7.

The ticket prices may be ridiculously high for Rangers faithful, but it may be worth it, considering the track record their goalie has in Game 7 encounters. In fact, he’s lost just once in seven tries in his Game 7 matchups, which came back in 2009, and that was the only instance where he allowed more than two goals in a Game 7. Overall, he’s allowed a total of seven goals in such games. In his most recent Game 7, which came in the deciding game in the last series versus Washington, Lundqvist stopped 35 of 36 shots in a 2-1 overtime win.

But the Lightning have already won two games at Madison Square Garden, Game 2 and Game 5, in this series alone, giving the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference the confidence that they can steal this one from the Presidents’ Trophy winners. They’ve certainly been very game opponents for the Rangers thus far.

The Rangers stormed back at Amalie Arena, once again staving off elimination with a 7-3 victory in Game 6. Derick Brassard had a historic playoff game for the Rangers, scoring a hat trick and racking up five points.

Whoever wins and moves onto the Stanley Cup, both teams will find out who their opponent is on Saturday night, when the Blackhawks and Ducks square off in their own Game 7.
