If ticket prices are actually worse this round, I think that adds to the theory. People who had that $100 free for a ticket don't anymore.

Also there probably is less demand given that they lost game 1.
There was a similar thing with the 2nd red wings series where they came into town down 2 games. The re-sale market was flooded like crazy and not surprisingly there were far more Wings fans in the building than in 2010.

I don't think there is a one size fits all reason for this issue as a whole, but I'd guess the money factor is at least half of it.
