Washington Capitals fans have been waiting 20 years for a Stanley Cup home game, and 44 years for the Stanley Cup. With a Game 3 Win on Saturday night, ticket prices for Games 4 and 6 (if necessary) have reached astronomical heights.

According to TicketIQ, prices for games 4 and 6 at CapItal One Arena are up 31%. The average price for the Capitals series are now the most expensive tracked since 2011, at an average of $2,910

We did a quick scan of Stubhub Sunday evening to see what the status is for Game 4, to be played Monday night at Capital One Arena. There were approximately 600 tickets remaining with the cheapest ticket right now sitting at $1,150, for corner, upper-tier seats. Second-row seats will cost you $6,000 and up.

It’s doubtful prices will come down, and will likely rise before the drop of the puck for Game 4.

    Why stop your analysis at 2011? Does that imply that tickets for the 2010 Stanley Cup in Chicago actually cost more, which would disprove your case?

    Love the Caps. They have become an expensive habit. Reminiscing … My 1976 Caps. vs. BOS game at Capital Centre (I parked in “Stars and Stripes”) cost me about $2 for parking, $7 for upper deck seat, $5 for concessions. But I’d pay the price to attend that Stanley Cup Final game. Thank Goodness I can watch on the boob tube

    Fortunately, I now have season tickets. But I didn’t have then until 2008-09 (when I got a partial plan) and became a full STH for 2009-10. Judging by the listed price on my Cup tickets, I’m getting a bargain, relatively speaking. But, back in the past, since about 1975, we would go to a few games a year, either getting them at the gate or in advance. It was really only feasible for us to go on the weekend (when games were at the Capital Center) and we lived in Sterling. We did that for many years. But then the kids came along, so our game going went down. Usually when we could get tickets through our office ticket lottery. We weren’t able to go in 1998 as we were involved in kids activities, especially swim team. But then we finally started going again when our youngest was a senior in HS.

    Wow Diane! We may both agree … We didn’t think in 1970-or-80 something that the Caps eventually would become the worldwide phenomenon that they have. Or that they would eventually be a star-studded colossus with a chance to be among the NHL Elite. Not bad for the team’s humble beginnings
