What you're saying isn't really applicable here because of the second game. Rangers STHs were forced to buy both games when the vast majority of fans could only justify the expense for one game. The NHL knew this and chose to squeeze the lucrative NYC market. The NHL is in the business of growing their brand & popularity, and the way this all went down is going to hurt that brand
