New York Rangers playoffs tickets hot item on secondary market

The following is a sponsored post by TicketIQ

Despite a tough triple overtime loss to the Penguins, Rangers ticket prices remain the most expensive for the 2022 NHL playoffs. The secondary ticket market is the only way to get tickets since face-value tickets are available via Ticketmaster, but are mostly sold out. 

On the secondary market, the average list price for Rangers home games against the Penguins is $835, which is the highest price of any team for the first round of the 2022 NHL Playoffs. The cheapest Rangers ticket available at Madison Square Garden for Game two on Thursday is $250 for a pair of tickets in section 420, which is actually up 4% since the Game 1 loss. 


Lower level ticket prices start between $360 and $450 depending on the game, and prices can go as high as $5,000+ for tickets at center ice on the glass. The below ticket in section 107 is going for $667.


Historically, this year’s 1st round ticket prices are the most expensive we’ve ever tracked for the Rangers. Previously, their most expensive opening round prices were in 2016, also against Pittsburgh, when the average list price was $616. In fact, ticket prices for this series at The Garden are more expensive than any Rangers conference semifinals series we’ve ever tracked. Previously the most expensive was 2015 against the Capitals, when the average price was $831. 


With inflation spiking for everything, 2022 NHL playoff tickets are no exception, with 1st round playoffs up 47% from 2019, the last pre-covid playoffs with fans.  Every team in the 2022 playoffs has an increase from their last playoffs. The largest increase from their pre-covid 2019 numbers are for the Colorado Avalanche who are up 83% and are the Vegas favorite to not only make it to the Stanley Cup Finals, but also to win it.
