Struggling Devils look to rebound in February

The New Jersey Devils have been playing some of the worst hockey in recent memory over this season. On four different occasions, the Devils have lost at least four games in a row. Miraculously, the team isn’t in last place thanks in part to a slight surge since the firing of head coach Peter DeBoer and the non-traditional hiring of three head coaches. They now look at a relatively easy month of February. More than half of their games this month are against teams that are currently out of the playoffs. While the team has been playing better, the crowd won’t come back until the team is back in the playoff race. That makes the tickets relatively cheap. The average cost for New Jersey Devils tickets for home games is at $78.28 per seat. According to Razorgator, here are the most expensive and cheapest tickets on the market.

The most expensive game of the month is also against the hottest team in hockey. The Boston Bruins are absolutely killing teams the past three weeks. Since the start of the New Year, the Bruins have had just one game in which they did not receive a point. After a rough start to the season, they have really turned it on. The Devils have always had trouble with the Bruins, including earlier this season. They suffered a 3-0 loss back on January 8th. The two teams are fighting for everything, with one having a much larger shot at success. This game may end up being a heartbreaker for all the fans in the Prudential Center. They are still paying an average of $169.84 for tickets to the Boston Bruins. The get-in price for this game is $61.00.

The least expensive game of the month comes against the worst team in the Western Conference. The Edmonton Oilers are only behind the floundering Buffalo Sabres as far as least points in the NHL. They still have a team worth watching as they have a ton of offensive ability. Unfortunately, they couldn’t stop a junior’s team on the defensive side. The Oilers are allowing 3.3 goals per game, and are allowing teams to score on 79% of their penalty killing opportunities. Despite getting both Victor Fasth and Ben Scrivens in the past year, they cannot keep the puck out of the net. The Devils may actually improve on their 2.2 goals per game when they take on this team. Fans should still come to see future stars like Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. The average ticket price is only $51.62. To get into this matchup, it will cost less than a meal does on the inside. A paltry $13.00 will get you in the doors for this Monday night matchup.
