The Los Angeles will head back to the Staples Center to face the Anaheim Ducks in Game 6 of their second round matchup Wednesday night. Kings secondary prices for Game 6 have dropped in the last 24 hours as the Ducks have the opportunity to clinch the series with a win on Los Angeles’ home ice.
The average price for Game 6 Ducks vs Kings tickets is currently $218.80, down 21% from yesterday’s average of $277.21. The Kings hold the lowest second round home average in the NHL Playoffs heading into Wednesday’s game.
In addition to falling secondary prices, the Kings have also seen the cheapest secondary ticket fall to $68. Yesterday’s cheapest secondary ticket was $75. The cheapest face value ticket has remained at $99, 31% more expensive than the cheapest secondary ticket.
Pending a Ducks loss Wednesday, the series will head back to the Honda Center on Friday night for Game 7. Average ticket price for Game 7 Kings vs Ducks tickets is currently $289.84, down almost 8% from yesterday’s average of $314.86. The Ducks hold the second lowest average secondary ticket price in the second round, trailing just the opposing Kings. If a Game 7 is forced, it is very likely the average price for that game will go up as Ducks fans will hold out until knowing that game is necessary.
The cheapest secondary ticket price will be well above the cheapest face value price for a potential Game 7 in Anaheim. If the series continues after Wednesday, fans will find the cheapest face value ticket at $79, 60.76% less expensive than the cheapest secondary price of $127.
Los Angeles skates into the Staples Center Wednesday with their season on the line. The Kings have dropped three straight to the Ducks and were shutout in Game 4. With their backs to the boards Wednesday, they’ll rely on the LA faithful to carry them to a hopeful Game 7 Friday night. The Kings have made it to the Western Conference Finals the past two years and won the Stanley Cup in 2012.
The Ducks haven’t been to the Western Conference Finals since the 2006-07 season when they won the Stanley Cup against the Ottawa Senators. That finished three times in four seasons for the Ducks reaching at least the Western Conference FInals, as they lost to the Edmonton Oilers in 2006 and lost to the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2003.
Anaheim can close the series Wednesday if they can successfully navigate past an inevitably electric Los Angeles crowd. It will be left to Ryan Getzlaf and his crew of Ducks to dethrone the Kings Wednesday at the Staples Center. If the Ducks can pull out a win, they’ll move on to face the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Finals.
