Flyers clash with Penguins in cheapest outdoor game this season

Editor's note: The following is sponsored content written by TicketIQ.

Attending this year’s Stadium Series game won’t come at much of a cost for fans at Heinz Field.

With the Penguins set to host the Flyers in the 68,000-plus seat stadium on Saturday, tickets are the cheapest of all three outdoor games this season. On TicketIQ, CSN Philly’s official ticketing partner, Penguins vs. Flyers Stadium Series tickets now average $202.

Saturday’s game is considerably cheaper than the Centennial Classic and Winter Classic, which were held in Toronto and St. Louis last month, respectively. The Winter Classic between the Blues and Blackhawks averaged a $632 ticket while the Maple Leafs and Red Wings’ Centennial Classic posted a $299 average.

As it stands now, this weekend’s game owns the third lowest average for a Stadium Series game in the last four years, trumped only by a 2016 game between the Wild and Blackhawks at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, which owned an overall average of $160. It is the cheapest two-day-out average that any game has posted, however, inching past a 2015 game between the Sharks and Kings ($203) for that title.

Only a 2014 Stadium Series game at Yankee Stadium between the Rangers and Islanders owned a lower get-in price ($45) two days out than Saturday’s game at Heinz Field. Penguins vs. Flyers tickets currently start from $67 each in the 500 sections.

The Flyers will play in their first Stadium Series game since the format was created in 2014. It will be their third overall outdoor game after 2010’s Winter Classic at Fenway Park and 2012’s Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park.

The game comes at a crucial time for the Flyers, who remain on the cusp of a playoff spot in a crowded Eastern Conference. As of Thursday afternoon, they sit just three points removed from the second wild-card spot. Some pushing and shoving will occur over the next two months, however, as several other teams fight for that last playoff berth.

The Penguins play host to their second outdoor game at Heinz Field following 2011’s Winter Classic against the Capitals. It will be the reigning Stanley Cup champions’ fourth outdoor game since 2008. They enter Saturday owners of the second seed in the Metropolitan division behind the league-best Capitals with 82 points in tow.

Flyers host Avalanche, Senators in least expensive games remaining this season

It will be a make-or-break next few weeks for the Flyers, who are still in the middle of the muddled playoff picture in the Eastern Conference. Fans can find a silver lining on the resale ticket market, however, as prices for Flyers tickets have dropped over the last several days.
 
On TicketIQ, the official ticket partner of CSN Philly, prices have tumbled steadily, leading to premium value at a slew of remaining home games. The Avalanche, Blue Jackets and Senators will be the most affordable matchups through the end of the regular season.
 
Following their road trip to Pittsburgh for their Stadium Series game against the Penguins, the Flyers cap the month on home ice against the Avalanche. The lowly Avs have stumbled in the Central division, posting a league-worst 15-38-2 record over 55 games. They’ll carry with them the cheapest tickets available through the end of the season, with tickets averaging $75 and starting from as low as $26 each.
 
March will play host to six games at Wells Fargo Center, and games against the Blue Jackets and Senators will be the cheapest to attend. The surging Blue Jackets head to Philly for a March 13 game, where tickets are an average of $79 and $25 get-in price. The Senators’ March 28 trip is posting near-identical prices at a $79 average and $23 get-in price.
 
On the opposite end of the financial spectrum, a March 15 battle with the rival Penguins is the priciest remaining game in Philadelphia during the regular season. With Sidney Crosby and the reigning Stanley Cup champions in town, tickets are currently averaging $171 with a $81 get-in price. An April 1 game against the Devils is in a similar price stratosphere, fetching a $160 average and the cheapest tickets listed at $76 each.

Flyers tickets at season-low prices for upcoming February games

Flyers tickets at season-low prices for upcoming February games

Editor's note: The following is sponsored content written by TicketIQ: 

February will be a make-or-break month for the Flyers, who despite a recent scoring slump remain in the thick of the playoff race in the Eastern Conference.

It will come at premium value for fans looking to attend an upcoming game, however. 

On TicketIQ, the official ticket partner of CSN Philly, tickets at season-low prices exist over the team’s remaining four home games this month.

The team will take on the divisional Islanders and Capitals while also welcoming the reigning Western Conference champion Sharks before closing the month out against the Avalanche on Feb. 28.

The red-hot Sharks enter Philadelphia for a Saturday matinee game. The Sharks own first-place honors in the Pacific division and sit just five points behind the Wild for top seed in the Western Conference. Their trip down Broad Street serves as the Flyers’ top-priced game remaining this month, with tickets averaging $133 and starting from $84 each.

A three-game road trip through Western Canada follows Saturday’s matchup before the Flyers return home to host the Capitals on Feb. 22. Perhaps expectedly, the Presidents’ Trophy favorites are also commanding big resale prices with an average of $101 and a $43 get-in price.

The Avalanche will touch down at Wells Fargo Center on Feb. 28. The post-Stadium Series game will be the second cheapest game to attend in Philadelphia through the end of the season. Tickets own an average resale price of $79 and the cheapest start from $32 each.
