Can you get cheap tickets right before the game?

Has anyone had any luck scalping tickets or anything day of the game?
Or If anyone is trying to unload some tickets for tomorrows game due to them not being able to make it.
Go to stubhub like 2 hours to 1 hour prior to the game. A lot of buyers will pull their tickets off around then and decide to just go to the game, but some who really can't make the game will discount their prices ridiculously.
Last 5 games I've gone to I've gotten pairs in the lowers for under $70 per ticket and we've never sat higher than row 12.
To share some examples, about 1.5 hrs till gametime last yr we snagged 2 5th row behind the Flyers' bench vs. Pittsburgh for $65 each. And about 2 hours to game-time last year we snagged 2 3rd row Flyers shoot 2x for $55 each vs. the Rangers.
If you're just looking to get into the game as cheap as possible, without fail there are always some dirt cheap upper level tix available right around the 2 hour mark.
You might have a little bit more trouble pulling this off tomorrow since it's a weekend game and very few people have to work, but it can still be done. If you don't find anything to your liking though, I wouldn't worry because Xfinity live is a great place to watch a game too.
