My rep called me and said there was a guy in his office with my tickets that was denied admission. Each time I had to cough up the money for the closest available seats. The Rangers will do the same thing, the original ticket owner is 100% responsible and liable for what happens to their ticket stubs
Not so sure on that, at least with the Rangers. When I moved in the middle of the 2005-06 season, I misplaced my season ticket book. I called my rep to ask if I could get the tickets re-printed. He said all I needed to do was email the tickets to myself, and print. The originals would be voided. I explained I was worried about someone finding them, selling etc. Said not to worry about it.

Last year, at about 6:30, I couldn't find my tickets. Figured I left them at work. Went to a library, printed up new tickets, walked in, no problem. Got to work the next day, and the tickets were nowhere to be found. I definitely did bring them with me, and did have them in the car when I was driving to the game. Also searched the car, not in there. Had to have dropped them as I was walking or getting out of my car. If someone picked them up, sold them, not sure how the Garden can justify that I am responsible for that money.

About 10 years ago, one of my regular buyers gave my tickets to a friend. His friend got to the ticket taker and was denied. Came up on the scanner as "reported stolen". I know I never reported the tickets stolen. Anyway, my regular emailed me the next day after hearing from his friend. I called the season ticket office, told them the guy had to buy tickets in the 300's. The rep called me an hour later said I should stop by one of the windows and there would be an envelope with my name for a refund. The gave me cash for the 300-level tickets the guy had to buy. The Rangers had never contacted me saying there was a problem.
