Round 3 game tickets can be had... at Scotiabank Place
We all know the ticket situation here in Buffalo... with a season ticket base now capped at 14,800, few "additionals" available to season ticket holders, and no window sales, the single ticket buyer has had to scramble to find their way into HSBC Arena.
"Window prices", which is a bit of a misnomer, has tickets for round 3 starting at $90 and climbing to $250 for 100 level sidelines and clubs.
But the situation in Ottawa is far different. While the Senators have sold out all their playoff games this postseason, it has been a relatively easy ticket, and tickets for game 4 against New Jersey were available to walk up customers the day of the game.
Check out the pricing chart on the Ottawa Senators website. Tickets run from $86.21 - $217.24 (prices in Canadian dollars which these days doesn't mean much). They go onsale Monday at 10 AM. It's a 330 mile hop to Kanata... hope Sabres fans are paying attention and jump on these seats! Because you know damn well that the Ians and Brents and Trevors from Welland and Stevensville are going to be in our building this week cheering on their *harumph* beloved Sens.
I watched almost the entire game at WNYM headquarters on Elmwood and got to enjoy seeing firsthand all the "open thread" comments coming in on Bfloblog. Peter couldn't make it down but joined us on the thread as well. It was a kickass time!
