It will come as no surprise to Islanders fans that during this season in which home games are being split between Barclays Center and NYCB Live’s Nassau Coliseum, the latter has been a far more popular venue for ticket-buyers.

TicketIQ.com, which aggregates a number of resale market sites, has the numbers to illustrate it.

Average asking prices for the remaining games at the Coliseum are 84 percent higher than for those in Brooklyn, $294 to $160.

TicketIQ said the most expensive remaining game at the Coliseum is for the return of former captain John Tavares, now with the Maple Leafs, on Feb. 28. The least expensive ticket for that night is going for $105.

The most expensive remaining game in Brooklyn is Jan. 12 against the Rangers, with a starting asking price of $132 as of Friday morning.

Three days later, the Blues visit Brooklyn. The least expensive ticket was $9.
