Missing the playoffs in four of the last five seasons, the New Jersey Devils try to get out of NHL purgatory and have a relevant season as the regular season recently kicked off. With new management and coaching, the Devils are looking to capture lightning in a bottle and advance the rebuilding curve.
With sixth overall pick in the NHL Draft, Pavel Zacha, looking to make an impact later on in the season, most of the attention falls on Adam Henrique, who is looking to continue to trend positively after his strong rookie season. The Devils want to use the strength of their goaltender, Cory Schneider, and win many low scoring games this season.
Early in the season the low scoring aspect is true on the Devils’ side of the coin, scoring just five goals in three games. Unfortunately, their defense hasn’t been up to par, giving up 11 goals in those games en route to a 0-3 start.
Mike Cammalleri leads the team with three points thus far, with Lee Stempniak, Jiri Tlusty and Kyle Palmieri following close behind with two points.
With the season having officially begun, below is a look at the most expensive secondary market Devils tickets according to SeatSmart.com, now that the market has stabilized from when tickets were first released.
The most expensive Devils game of the season is when the franchise retires Martin Brodeur’s number at the Prudential Center on February 9th. This momentous and celebratory night for fans has an average ticket price of $750.92 with a get-in price of $228 and is by far the most sought after tickets in the entire NHL during the season.
A game on the road against the Toronto Maple Leafs on February 4th is the second most expensive with an average ticket price of $341.56 with a get-in price of $80. Coming in third is a road game against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden with an average price of $259.84 and a get-in price of $83 for a game against the Devils’ greatest rival. Fans attending this interstate rivalry road game can find New York City parking starting from $10 on ParkWhiz.com to help ease the pain of thinking about city traffic.
This Devils season may not be one for the record books, but with Brodeur’s jersey retirement waiting as the apex moment, it certainly will provide a night to remember for the franchise.
