The two teams who will contest the 2014 Stanley Cup have now been confirmed, but the ticket prices that come along with that may make bad reading for the fans.
Given that the two teams are based in the two most populated cities in America, the Los Angeles Kings and the New York Rangers will go head to head in a seven game series to determine the NHL's best team.
Both teams put a limited number of tickets on sale on Monday for their first two home games of the Cup and the prices were nothing short of ludicrous.
The Kings tickets cost either $349 or $629 depending on your choice of area in the arena while Rangers fans saw ticket prices range from $480 all the way up to a whopping $2,490.
Resale tickets didn't offer fans much more of a discount after tickets for the clashes in LA went for $628 or $626 respectively.
New York seems to be the sought after tickets though with $1,235 and $1,329 being the median prices paid by New York fans.
Fans can only imagine what sort of ticket prices they could be looking at if the series should go to game seven which would be based in Los Angeles.
