Yankee Stadium is sold out for Isles-Rangers

Tomorrow’s outdoor game between the Rangers and Islanders at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday is officially sold out.

From the NHL:

With today’s announcement, all four games of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ will be played in sold out stadiums. On Saturday, a festive crowd of 54,099 packed Dodger Stadium to see the spectacle of the NHL’s first outdoor game played in California. On Sunday, the Rangers and New Jersey Devils entertained 50,105 fans in the first-ever hockey game played at Yankee Stadium.

There’s also the Blackhawks-Penguins game on March 1 at Soldier Field, which sold out in less than 24 hours.

The sixth and final outdoor game of the season — after the highly successful Winter Classic and the four Stadium Series games — is the Heritage Classic between the Canucks and Senators on March 2 at Vancouver’s BC Place. In December, Mike Gillis expressed confidence that that game would also be a sell-out. However, for a number of reasons, not the least of which has been the recent play of the home team, it’s fair to say the buzz surrounding that event has been less than what organizers had hoped for. Today, tickets are still available.

    If this game is sold out, why can I go to ticketmaster and buy 2 terrace seats together in section 320A right now?

      Because in NHL-speak, sold out doesn’t necessarily mean that there aren’t any tickets available.

      See the game at Dodgers Stadium – 56,000 capacity, 54,099 attendance – and they said that game ‘sold out,’ too.

      Go figure.

        Translation: They are blowing smoke up our @$$e$.

        Last September PHT posted a story about how tickets for the game at Dodger Stadium were selling at a “record pace”, “faster than any previous Winter Classic”. That game didn’t ‘sell out’ until this past Saturday….. the day of the game.

        Don’t believe everything you read folks.

      Same exact thing with Dodger Stadium. There were available tickets the morning of the game.

    i don’t get the appeal of going to a Hockey game where you are most likely too far away to see whats going on. It looks fun from my couch tho.

    Yea comon folks buy my $200 seats in section 407B for only $150 each, “it’s sold out!”.

    But seriously, can someone take them off my hands, I already went Sunday and got the full outdoor experience

    I have no clue why people go to these things. Twice the price of a standard ticket and your a mile away from the action.
