Trying to get to both three and four. Maybe six if it goes that far. Hopeful the prices are not too bad. Would've gotten Pay as we Play but I'll be on vacation mid may.

You can opt out of Pay as we Play after the 2nd round. Most likely the 2nd round would be over by mid May.

No need to apologize for that.. Pretty much any other Eastern team and we'd hate you but I can't see them having more than 30 fans in our building of 17,600 lol

I am not trying to be pompous so I apologize for that.

I am serious though, I have a feeling the discounts are coming. I hope you are correct about the excitement and the eagerness waiting for our first home game but the Devils have done this for playoff games before, against a more marquee opponent.

I may sound pompous with the claim that if one playoff ticket to a round 1 game is the difference between paying bills on time, problems are larger than just ticket expenses.

I hope we can recreate that Game 2 crowd from 2010, we looked like Calgary that evening.



i agree, if it comes down to paying bills or devils tickets, then those people clearly don't go.
I'd like to think that even the state of the economy, that is the exception and not the rule with most people.
Especially when tickets can be had for around $60.

I would not be shocked to see a few Cats fans here and there. NJ and Florida can be interchangeable at times. NJ transplants in Florida and Florida ties in NJ.

I expect a ton of Devils fans to be at the Bank Atlantic Center, one of the many away venues Devils fans show up in droves to.

I think I'll be able to find cheaper tickets in the first round.

That's fine if you're only planning to go to the first round, but if you want to go to the second round and we get there, bear in mind we'll almost certainly be playing a division opponent (NYR, PHI, PIT) unless the roof falls in - i.e. Rangers and Boston 'both' lose their series. Whatever you save on the secondary market in the first round, you'll lose on the second and then some.

I agree, but I already noted I'll be on vacation for the middle of the second round, unfortunately.

Yeah I didn't see that the first time. You said mid-May though...the first couple of home games in the second round would be before then, since we're the among the last series to end I doubt there'll be many days off before the second round.

Admittedly I am getting a little tired of seeing all the ticket talk on both message boards when the first home game is still more than a week away, and we're going to sell out or come very close to it against a supposedly death box office draw with much higher playoff prices than even in recent years :P Imagine these games at the CAA, before the current regime's marketing push?

Maybe not worry about selling out, but worry about trying to be the loudest and proudest fans out there, while giving the team home ice advantage.

This is where those Devils Army chants should be heard across the building on TV. Or we could be like those annoying fan bases where we loudly boo the refs when any player on our own team falls down (when clearly there is no penalty) and chant "a$$hole" and "you suck" so loudly that ten seconds later there is a penalty called. That's what happens in Carolina and other places and boy does it work.

It would also help if MSG's audio wasn't so pathetic. I mean check out the CBC and MSG+'s feeds from Saturday; there's a noticeable difference in crowd noise:

Wow, nice job coming up with that comparison. I wonder if there's someone to contact who might be willing to make the proper adjustment.

off the top of my head, i can think of three seasons that the devils didn't sellout their playoff opener. 1995, 2000 and 2003.

The fans can fill this building when it counts, hopefully the first game of the playoffs counts for enough people.

Seriously. The CBC audio gives the feeling of being there live. The sound quality is excellent. Unfortunately, MSG+ lowers the crowd background volume to focus in on the annoucers. Maybe they do this because our broadcast team basically annouces from an open booth in the lower bowl. I wish they would change it as the CBC broadcast sounds more natural.
