When the B's lost game 5 to the Canucks in 2011 I couldn't drop the prices for my game 6 tickets fast enough. Price were insane for a while whne game 6 had the possibility of being the clincher at home. I was lucky enough to drop one of my pairs of loges to $1300/per and make it the cheapest pair at the end the Canucks shot twice. They sold within a couple minutes of the Canucks winning game 5. I knew it had to be a Canuck fan that bought em. The next day seats next to them were available for $750. I wasn't surprised to see Canuck fans in the seats at the gam. I gave them my business card...they weren't gonna buy their airfare without their tickets in hand!
Well...I don't buy airfare. Benefit of working for an airline...free flights.
