More than anything I think this shows the true value of buying a season ticket plan, even if it's only a 10 game flex plan or 5 game rookie plan, or whatever. By having any sort of priority for these events, insane prices and the hassle of buying online tickets are almost entirely eradicated. My seats for round 3 are $82 and guaranteed for every game rather than $141!!!

I only wish I would have bought 4 rather than 2 at the beginning of the playoffs.


Absolutely. I didn't even have to do anything at all to purchase the strips for rounds 3 and 4, and the ticket prices for STH's to these rounds are well below those I've been seeing listed on here. In years like this, you're happy to have purchased season tickets (not so much last season).

It's weird, I got a pre-sale invitation to round 2, but nothing at all for round 3. Nothing in spam, trash, etc. How do I contact the Devils to make sure I'm included in any pre-sales for round 4, if it happens? I don't want to miss out again.

You are right, and I think I am just a little bitter that I can't go, unless one of my companies vendors gives me club seats again

If anything, underpricing the tickets would be a boon to the Ranger fans. They don't know if their team is through, so they want to be able to sell (preferably for a profit) if they don't make it into the ECF. If the Devils had priced uppers at, say, $70 so that "more of the usual crowd could get in," then those Ranger fans would probably feel pretty good knowing that their options are either watch their team play, or profit.

Shame on anyone who thinks that the Devils sold out to Ranger fan money on this one. They could have waited until the ECF lineup was set, charged 75% more if NY had gotten in, and gone straight to the general public (the largest market) to maximize revenue, but instead they showed that they really do give damn about us and having a better experience at the Rock for our first ECF games in 9 years.

Did you buy tickets to any Rangers games this year? They excluded anybody who bought singles to a Rangers game. They said they excluded people who bought Caps tickets, too, but some of my friends who bought those tickets were included on the distribution.

Not to mention that today's sale was only 1,000 tickets to each game.. After PAWP, they had 7k left for each game.. 6k were sold in the high-security, Devils fan only presale (and at a discount from the general sale).. The remaining 1k were sold today

That was fantastic work by the team to have the presale an pretty much guarantee Devils fans were the only ones who could buy tickets.. 1k in the general sale is nothing and they priced it so high that I'm sure, like Devils Dose said, some Rangers fans were deterred given their teams uncertainty

Does anyone know a # I can call to ensure I get the pre-sale code for the next series (should they get there, of course)?

Edit: See the email, thanks

so in essence it takes about 5-8% ranger fans out of the crowd and it's 70/30 split at best? As long as tickets are on scalp sites and to the public ranger fans will buy them and pay for them. You'll see the same blue jerseys behind the bench and in the same pockets in the lower level because those seats are already owned by ticket brokers.

Good work by the devils to help eliminate some ranger fans but if people think youll get the same lack of rangers fans as flyers youre sadly mistaken.

Don't listen to the Devils website, every time they say sold out there are always tickets still available. You gotta keep on checking the different price ranges on Ticketmaster. They often releases more tickets as the event nears I bought tickets in the 200 level 3 hours before both flyers game and right now there are still tickets left.

You can still get lower level tickets for home game 1 for $250.

I also agree that Ticketmaster/Devils ought to be completely transparent about what tickets are available. I don't know who controls it though, whether it's the Devils or Ticketmaster.

The ticket operations department with the Devils are the one's who release the tickets for sale on ticketmaster.

I have 4 each to games 1 an 2.. Looking to sell at cost ($102.50 with fees) to any Devils fan.. Just don't be a dick and buy these to resell for profit

Game 1 - Section 215, row 8, seats 1-4 on the aisle

Game 2 - Section 231, row 9, seats 15-18

I just want to give props to Colin for pulling over $800 out of his own pocket to buy four sets of tickets at the special reduced presale price to games 1 & 2 of the next series for the sole purpose of selling them to other Devils fans at no extra cost. If the Devils end up playing the Rangers, I'm sure he easily could have made a pretty nice profit had he put them up for sale on eBay or Stubhub -- which would've been totally understandable had he chosen to do so.

But because he's such a huge Devils fan, on his own accord, he made sure that eight Devils fans -- myself included -- will be in the building for at least one game during the Eastern Conference Finals -- at a low price to boot.

Thanks, dude. I'll be sure to seek you out at Game 2. You can count on that.

:cheers:

(Just so everyone knows, all the extra tix he bought for this round have been sold.)

No doubt, Colin is one selfless dude and deserves props.
