The average asking price for the Rangers' four potential NHL Eastern Conference finals games at Madison Square Garden was $1,261.21 as of yesterday morning, according to TiqIQ.com, which monitors the secondary ticket market nationwide.

That number is skewed upward by speculation in late-series games, including $2,363.03 for a potential Game 7 against the Lightning.

The average asking price for Game 1 tomorrow is $883.33. Prices are far lower for the three potential games in Tampa, with an average of $387.93 and a mere $264.83 for Game 3 Wednesday.

Last year's conference finals between the Rangers and Canadiens averaged $951.51, and the 2012 conference finals between the Rangers and Devils averaged $608.41.
