The New York Rangers came into game three of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday having lost the two first games but now, finally, being back on home ice.

The outrageous ticket prices for games three and four had been discussed heavily within the hockey world in the build-up to the Finals but there was a dramatic change before game three.

With the Rangers bringing Stanley Cup hockey to Madison Square Garden for the first time in 20 years, the ticket prices in the secondary market, saw an 11% decrease following game two.

After the Kings took a 2-0 lead, clearly demand for the tickets or willingness to pay the prices dipped.

Despite the drop, on-line ticket store, TiqIQ were still reporting that the tickets for the games in New York were still the most expensive since they started keeping data.

Now having lost game three, it is anyone's guess what impact this will have on ticket prices for game four.

Will Rangers fans really want to be in Madison Square Garden when the Kings win the Cup? Or even more, should the Rangers win, is a game four which wouldn't even tie the series worth the hefty price?

Should the Rangers be able to pull off a miracle and force a game six which would also be played in New York, many people expect ticket prices to soar past the $3,000 mark.

Many people are expecting a white wash in this years Stanley Cup but no doubt Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers will be looking to have some say in that.
