Someone probably got a stack for free and just unloaded them to the scalper for next to nothing. I had a great time at the game but the way the Islanders and the NHL handled this just bothers me. They just used the Rangers and their fans as a way to circumvent the tax break NYC gives to MSG.
Hopefully, they learn from their mistakes. Weekends only, lower prices (keep them in line with Giants tickets), and probably better off with just one game in a city per year.
