How can you get tickets, and for cheap? Here's how. Islanders' matchup on the 19th was originally supposed to be against Columbus, obviously not a huge draw. You can still find tickets for this matchup for $18 on StubHub with the caveat that "because of the NHL lockout, the game dates, opposing teams, and players in the game may change":
They go on to say that, because of these changes, you can get a full refund of the tickets. I called StubHub to see if this refund/cancellation was AUTOMATIC, or if you were given the OPTION to KEEP the tickets? Sure enough, they said that we will be given the OPTION to KEEP the tickets via email, if we want (obviously we want, that's the whole point).
As you remember last year, the games at the Coliseum were a lot of fun, and extremely heavily attended by Devils fans. This happens to be our first game of the season and it falls on a Saturday afternoon, so this could be really exciting. Tom Gulitti and the Devils beat writers do an amazing job at finding this stuff early; however, the schedule changes will probably be announced on Saturday to the greater masses out there.
Take advantage of this "insider info" (and also take advantage of an Islanders fan/scalper who's selling his tickets for cheap/by default and has NO clue) and let's get Devils fans out on Saturday the 19th. Tailgate maybe?
