Ticket prices for the Stanley Cup finals between the Kings and Devils go up dramatically after Game 1.
If you have any interest in attending the Stanley Cup Finals between the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings, it's probably best for your pocket book if you go early. The average price for Game 1 tickets is $485 with some going for as cheap as $185, according to TiqIQ. There are still about 30 tickets available for below $250, which means they are going anywhere from 4-37 percent market value.
After Game 1, tickets get significantly more expensive pretty quickly. By Game 2, the average ticket price is $729 and the prices start at nearly $300. It gets even worse when the series moves to Los Angeles, where Game 3 and 4 are both selling for an average of more than $1,200 with nothing available for less than $400.
Although Game 5 is not quite as expensive, the possibility of this series going to a Game 6 or 7 means you'll be paying for it. The low end for tickets for either game are hovering around $600 and the average for either is more than $1,700.
