Serves me right for trying to get better seats for refreshing a few times.

Maybe I will have better luck later on today. If not, I too will be there in spirit.
I think they are holding a TON of seats. they have that Season ticket deal were u get free playoffs games for this season. that deal looks like it would expire tomorrow. So i think they will release a Bunch of seats late tomorrow.

finally got it to work. i actually got the interactive map to work for game 3....there was literally like 30 seats left. but got the entire first round done too:
game 3: section 321, row E
game 4: section 305, row E
game 6 (hoping): same as game 4

all tickets were (with the fees) $83....way better than stubhub

just to be clear if there is no game 4 ticketmaster refunds you correct? same if I were to buy for round 2?

The brokers (scalpers) are always all over events like this. Ticketmaster has never and will never put any real effort to thwart the brokers automated buying bots and inside deals with ticketmaster agents.

For those who are shut out I would keep trying today. Very often orders are thrown back for any number of reasons.

I was getting shut out but once I tried best available in the 300 sections a good pair came up.

These will be sellouts and on Stubhub I think prices will rise the closer you get to gameday.

BTW I just made my sons week. He is 25 and on his own so money is tight. When I told him we were going to the playoff games he nearly went through the roof, it was a real Dad moment for me.

game 6 (if necessary) round 1.

went with the potentially very exciting game over the sure thing (games 3 & 4).

not a bad price and sure beats the hell out of 100 last row seating. i'll be damned if i give some schlep double the price he paid if not more.

(i'll save that until cup finals)

Damn it all! I woke up late after celebrating last night and their website was bugging out the entire time I was having big time trouble... Until it finally went through!

I'm in 319 for game 1 and 309 for game 2 so pumped for my first playoff game.

Try again. Just pulled up two in the 300's use best available then go to section and choose upper seating or whatever level u want.

That move could bite you in the ass. There hasn't been a game 6 since 2002. We lost our last 3 playoff appearances all in 5 games.

But... this is a different team! I will go through the roof if there's a game 6!

After much struggle... I finally got all 3 games for the first round. Thankfully someone posted that link because just going to the sites wasn't working of course.

Game 3 - 329 Row N
Game 4 - 317 Row O
Game 6 - 335 Row O

I must say I am shocked at how reasonable these prices are. You would think that Wang would really try and make the most of this but in truth for a major league playoff series in NY these tickets are priced nicely.

+1 keep trying.

Tickets are often thrown back for any number of reasons. Bad credit card somebody hits the refresh button etc.

Keep trying after today its gonna get tough.
