The average asking price for the three potential Rangers home games in the Stanley Cup Final is $2,439.85, according to TiqIQ.com, a site that aggregates data from a variety of secondary-market sites. The site said the prices are the highest it has seen for an NHL playoff series.

The lowest average price is for Game 3 on June 9 at $2,202.72, with a low of $995.

The site recorded average prices of $1,503.39 for the Blackhawks-Bruins Final last season, $994.38 for Devils-Kings in 2012 and $1,343.09 for Bruins-Canucks in 2011.

As of Friday morning, the lowest asking price for the potential Game 6 of the Cup Final at the Garden was $1,573, higher than the get-in price for the Super Bowl of $1,514 on the day of the game.

SeatGeek, another site that monitors the secondary market, reports average prices based on what actually has been paid for tickets rather than what is being asked. It said the average price for Games 3 and 4 at the Garden so far is $1,215. Over the past three days, that figure has risen to $1,930 per ticket.

This time last year, tickets for Games 3 and 4 in Boston were reselling for $855 per ticket.

SeatGeek estimates that a potential Game 6 of the Final would be the most expensive single NHL playoff game since the site began tracking prices in 2010. The average price paid over the past three days for Game 6 is $2,385.

The Rangers announced Friday that tickets for the Final will go on sale Monday at noon. Extremely limited tickets will be available on Ticketmaster via NYRangers.com and Ticketmaster charge-by-phone (866-858-0008). Fans will be eligible to purchase a maximum of two tickets total for all games at the Garden.
