This is not coming from the NHL or Yankees, it looks like this company "PrimeSport" bought out several sections with the intention of selling packages but the market never materialized at their price. Now they're dumping to salvage whatever they can.

It's the weirdest ad ever,
"Famous NYC Ball Park" instead of "Yankee Stadium"
"Pro Hockey Teams" instead of "NHL"
"New Jersey or Long Island foes" instead of "Devils & Islanders"


If you decide to buy, get 3 other people to buy because living social gives you the deal for free when three other people buy with your link. Also there's a $20 off code "LSJAN20" and you can get 4% cashback using ebates.com

So doing the math if 4 people shared the costs equally (with the free 4th ticket):

( ($290-$20) x 3 ) * (1 - 4%) = $776.60 / 4 = $194.40 per ticket, which is still well above market, so that VIP package in the Legends would have to really be worth your while for this deal to make sense
