The NHL Playoffs have thus far been provided intense action and some great hockey. It seems any given game could go to multiple overtimes, and any series, a game 7.
Hockey fans are at times the most diehard in all of sports. Just sit in a bar in Boston during a Bruins game, where the sheer hatred of rival teams (like the Flyers) combined with a few beverages of the adult variety mix for an atmosphere of pure chaos. Or experience downtown Vancouver after a Canucks playoff-series win, where all traffic and public transit shut down in lieu of Canadian-style “riots”, which tend to involve more hugs and cheering than couch burning.
Out of the remaining four teams, which city is the most amped to see there team in the Conference Finals? Check out the rankings below, based on the overall average ticket price for each home game, not including game 7.
NHL Playoffs Tickets: Conference Finals
- Vancouver Canucks tickets: $653
- San Jose Sharks tickets: $509
- Boston Bruins tickets: $292
- Tampa Bay Lightning tickets: $250
As we expected, Canucks tickets are far and away the hottest of the Playoffs. They have been atop our list as far back as our regular season rankings, and through the Playoffs, they have been the hottest team by three digits. San Jose and the Bay area is also happy to have their team this close to a Stanley Cup as well, as Sharks tickets are averaging almost $200 more than Bruins tickets.
