Blackhawks Tickets For Rematch Of Western Conference Playoffs Going For Under $150

Blackhawks Penguins

The Chicago Blackhawks have been among the top teams in the NHL for a few seasons and that has continued into 2014-15. With the prolonged success of the team, Blackhawks tickets have been able to draw high secondary market prices at home and on the road. That will be apparent with the next group of games Chicago will play this weekend. The Blackhawks will play a back-to-back with one game on the road and one game at the United Center.

On Saturday the 25th, the Blues host the Chicago Blackhawks at the Scottrade Center. The Blackhawks knocked the Blues out of the first round of the playoffs last spring in a tightly contested six-game series. Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith each had seven points in the six game series, while Kevin Shattenkirk led the Blues with 5 points and Vladimir Tarasenko had four goals in the series. According to Razorgator, Blues vs Blackhawks tickets for the rematch average $136.26 on the secondary market, with $60 getting you in the door.

Sunday night sees the Eastern Conference Senators make their first and only visit to Chicago this season. Despite trading away their captain in Jason Spezza in the off-season and having little expectations going into the season, the Senators have also started their season successfully. Led by one of the more exciting players in the league, Captain Erik Karlsson, the Senators are looking to prove they belong where they are. Blackhawks vs Senators tickets have an average price of $145.17 on the secondary market, 47% lower than the Hawks’ season average price.

Patriots Tickets Up 24% Against Reeling Bears

Patriots-Colts

It was only a few weeks ago that the New England Patriots were in trouble after getting off to a disappointing 2-2 start. Three games later, the would-be declining Tom Brady looks as good as ever and his Pats are looking quite strong at 5-2. Time can cure all, it seems, but the same may not be able to be said for the Chicago Bears, who visit Foxboro with a 3-4 record in Week 8. In fact, there is rumored to be a rift between Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall, one that could even stretch as far as dividing the team. While that’s for the media to spin, it’s a storyline that will still be analyzed as these two teams prepare to square off on Sunday.

The Bears come into the game needing a win to not fall out of the NFC North race behind the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers. The Patriots, however, will not be an easy opponent and the fans in New England are apparently excited for the game. According to Razorgator, the average price for Patriots Tickets is currently $359, more than 24% above the season average at Gillette Stadium this year.

On top of above average ticket prices, New England will look to extend its winning streak against Jay Cutler. Cutler is 0-2 in his career against New England. These two teams haven’t played since 2010 when New England won its last meeting at Soldier Field, 36-7. Expect Chicago to play with a lot of emotion after last week’s tough home loss.

Bruins Tickets Up Over 30% From A Year Ago

bruins

The Boston Bruins entered their seventh straight postseason after posting a 54-19-9 record last year. They would ultimately fall to the Montreal Canadiens in seven Eastern Conference Semifinal games, which has allowed ticket prices for the team’s two home games against the Canadiens this season to be the most expensive on the secondary market. The Rangers, Flyers and Kings will also serve as the Bruins’ top-priced opponents at TD Garden this season, all who established playoff berths in 2014. According to Razorgator, the season average for Bruins tickets at home is $213.80 on the secondary market, 30.8% above last season’s average of $163.41.

The most expensive home game on the Bruins schedule this season will be played on November 22 against the Canadiens. The average secondary price for Bruins vs Canadiens tickets to the late-November game is currently $354.94 and get-in price starts at $151. The Habs will again visit Boston onFebruary 8 and bring with them the second highest-priced tickets the Bruins will see at home this season. The average price for February 8 Boston Bruins tickets to see them take on the Canadiens is $301.36 on the secondary market. Get-in price for that game is currently $114.

The defending Eastern Conference Champion Rangers come to town on March 28, marking the third most expensive game in Boston during the regular season. Bruins v Rangers tickets for the late-March meeting average at $291.97 on the secondary market and own a get-in price of $105. The Flyers will make a stop at TD Garden earlier that month, carrying a $282.42 average ticket price and $99 get-in for their game in Boston on March 7. Rounding off the Bruins five most expensive games are the Kings, who will visit on January 31. The average secondary price for Bruins vs Kings tickets is $279.68 with a get-in price of $102.

It comes as no surprise that the success of the Bruins in recent years has accelerated ticket prices on the secondary market. As they try to stretch their postseason streak to eight consecutive seasons, they’ll be met with high secondary prices at TD Garden all season long.

Seahawks Tickets Averaging Nearly $350 When Cowboys Come To Town

seahwaks cowboys

This Sunday the Seattle Seahawks will host the Dallas Cowboys at CenturyLink Field in a matchup between two of the top rushing teams in the league.  The Cowboys are second in the league in rushing behind Seattle as the Seahawks will look to slow down DeMarco Murray who comes into this game with 670 yards rushing and five touchdowns, making him just the third running back in history along with Jim Brown and O.J. Simpson to rush for at least 100 yards in his first five games. The Cowboys are seeking their fifth straight win, a feat they haven’t accomplished since 2007.

According to Razorgator, Seattle Seahawks vs Dallas Cowboys tickets for this game have a current average price of $348.92 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $149, just below the average price for Seahawks tickets this season and way down from its average of $505 back in June.

Both of these teams are in competitive divisions with the Seahawks currently tied for first in the NFC West with Arizona, as the Cowboys are tied with Philadelphia for first in the NFC East.

While the Cowboys running game has been lights out, Seattle leads the league in rushing at 167.3 rush yards per game behind a bruising running style from Marshawn Lynch who has rushed for 306 yards this season and quarterback Russell Wilson who became just the second QB to have two career games of over 200 yards passing and over 100 yards rushing.

It’ll will be interesting to see if DeMarco Murray will have any success against Seattle who have been limiting opponents to just 62.3 yards per game as the Legion of Boom has not yet displayed their defensive form from last season.

Another matchup that is getting a lot of attention is between cornerback Richard Sherman and wide receiver Dez Bryant as Sherman, who led the league interceptions last season, has no picks so far this year.

Hey, did you hear about the Grammy-winning classical violinist who played for 45 minutes in an entranceway to the Washington, D.C. subway…and almost no one noticed?

It’s not very often that we here at Razorgator write about classical music or musicians; but when it involves one of the great instrumentalists of our time, and a sequel of sorts to a Pulitzer Prize-winning story, we tend to sit up and take notice.

After a Hard-Fought Game, Both the Falcons and Saints Head to Ohio For Week 2

atlanta-falcons-tickets-2013

In the first game of the season, the Falcons edged the Saints 37-34 in overtime at the Georgia Dome to claim first place in the NFC South. The victory marked just the fourth time the Falcons have beaten the Saints in the past 17 meetings.

The Falcons hope to forget a dismal 4-12 record in which Atlanta finished last in the division. For the Falcons to compete this season, star receiver Julio Jones will need to remain healthy after he missed the final 11 games of 2013. The 25-year-old put together a superstar performance on Sunday afternoon, hauling in 7 receptions for an astounding 116 yards. Quarterback Matt Ryan was dominant, completing 31 passes for a franchise-record 448 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Saints seek to improve upon an 11-5 record that saw New Orleans fall to the Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs last season. The Seahawks, of course, went on to win the Super Bowl. The success of the Saints this season will hinge upon the ability of Drew Brees and the New Orleans offense to put up points. In the 2009 season in which the Saints won the Super Bowl, Brees led an offense that put up a league-best 32 points per game. On Sunday afternoon, New Orleans lost despite scoring 34 points, which indicates that the Saints defense must improve if the team has any chance of returning to Super Bowl contention.

As the high-powered offenses of the Falcons and the Saints look to take off this season, the NFC South appears to be a force to be reckoned with. Atlanta travels to Cincinnati to face Andy Dalton and the Bengals, who beat the Ravens in a Week 1 thriller as Falcons tickets start from just $30 for this game. On the other hand the Saints fly to Cleveland to battle Brian Hoyer and the Browns, who fell to the Steelers in the first game with Saint tickets averaging less than $135 according to RazorGator.

New York, New York – A Look at the Jets and Giants

NY-Giants-vs.-NY-Jets

New York Jets: Under the scorching sun on Sunday afternoon, the Jets beat the Raiders 19-14 at Metlife Stadium to open the season atop the AFC East. New York hopes to improve upon an 8-8 record last season that saw the Jets fail to qualify for the playoffs for the second consecutive season under coach Rex Ryan. The first week was undoubtedly a success for a quarterback who threw turned the ball over 25 times in his rookie campaign and a defense that surrendered 24 points per game last season. Geno Smith led the Gang Green to a win despite two turnovers, and the Jets defense was superb, surrendering a league-low 158 yards.

The average Jets ticket on the secondary market for the game was $208, making Oakland the third-most expensive home game on the Jets schedule and only had three games over $200 all of last season according to RazorGator. Next week, the Jets face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field. Green Bay was embarrassed 36-16 in Week 1 by the defending-champion Seahawks, and will look for redemption against the Jets come Sunday.

New York Giants: In a disappointing start to the season on Monday Night Football, the Giants fell to the Lions 35-14 in Detroit. New York went 7-9 last season and failed to qualify for the playoffs for the second consecutive year after winning the Super Bowl in 2011 under coach Tom Coughlin. In the first week matchup against the Lions, quarterback Eli Manning was less-than-stellar, completing just 54 percent of his passes and throwing two interceptions. The Giants defense was not much better, surrendering 35 points, the third-most of any team in Week 1.

The Redskins and Cowboys lost, however, so the Giants find themselves in second place in the NFC East. New York returns to the Meadowlands on Sunday to battle the Cardinals in the home opener. Fans seeking a bargain should look no further, as the average New York Giants ticket price on the secondary market is $263, making Arizona the least-expensive home game for the Giants this season up $10 from June.
