The opportunity to see a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup Final is pretty much a once in a lifetime event. Seeing your team play in the Stanley Cup Final is rare enough on its own, and even then it is not often that a series ends up going the distance (this year’s Stanley Cup Final is only the third to require seven games since the start of the 2005-06 season, and the first since the 2010-11 season).
To have all of that happen and have the game be on your home ice for your favorite team? It is almost impossible for all of those circumstances to play out at the exact same time.
Just consider the Boston Bruins organization. When they host the St. Louis Blues for Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night (8 p.m. ET, NBC; Live Stream) it will be the first Stanley Cup Final Game 7 to ever be played in Boston, and with it being a winner-take-all game the ticket prices to get in the door are understandably high.
Very, very, VERY high.
Simply getting yourself in the door will cost you as much as $1,448 (on Vivid Seats) and as much as $1,570 on TicketMaster’s resale site or on Stubhub.
Those prices, of course, are for seats in the upper bowl, about as high in the balcony as you can get.
