The New Jersey Devils thwarted the Los Angeles Kings’ sweep attempt last night, preserving their pride and keeping their Stanley Cup hopes alive in the process. They also earned at least one more lucrative home game for their franchise, and if the secondary market is any indication, it’ll fill some coffers.

Sam Carchidi reports that Game 5 tickets are going for an average of $456 via numbers from TicketNetwork.com. It’s honestly more fun to look at the extreme highs and lows, though.

Honestly, I’m more familiar with Stub Hub myself, so I took a look at what tickets are going for there. As of this writing, the cheapest available tickets are two pairs of tickets priced $210 apiece. On the other end of the spectrum, there are Club seats ranging from $875-$899 per ticket. That $899 number represents most expensive tickets availabe on Stub Hub.

Ticket Network’s prices go a little higher, however. The peak prices are glass level seats (four left) that go for a resounding $2,166 per ticket.

Yup, things could get quite a bit more interesting if the Devils win again. Apparently they could also get a whole lot more expensive/lucrative, too.

    The fans in NJ are lucky. In LA, the nosebleeds were going for $900 for game 4. I know it was a potential clincher, but damn!

      900 is being generous.

    $450 might put a serious dent in Rex’s taco budget…

    The tickets are selling for less than what the Devils charged non-season ticket holders. Actually, most tickets are selling for $100-200 under face value. Just look at the prices on Ticketmaster. Nothing impressive at all. Although hardly surprising for a team that has been to the Cup Finals five times in the past 20 years, and won three of them.
