Two days later, on Monday, April 2, tickets will be available at the Rogers Arena Box Office and Ticketmaster Ticket Centres based on availability. Tickets will be distributed once the Round 1 game schedule is confirmed and announced.

Ticket prices for Round 1 start at $135. One year ago at this time, the Canucks website advertised Round 1 tickets starting at $90 — representing a 50 per cent increase.

Based on availability, each household will be eligible to purchase a maximum of four tickets per game.

All present Canucks ticket holders can buy their playoff tickets in advance of the public on-sale as part of their benefits package. Playoff Paks for Round 1 and 2 will also be available to Canucks Group Leaders, Power Play Pak buyers, Blue Line wait list members and other members of the Canucks family.
wow, ticket prices are fucking bullshit. I remember getting round 1 tickets 2 years ago for 80 a piece I think

What? Tickets are cheaper than I thoguht...
I always thought Canuck tickets started at like $100+ for the crappiest seats in regular season.

And I could have imagined playoff tickets would be way higher....

A buddy asked me if I wanted rd.1 tickets earlier and I just said no cause I assumed it was going to be a few hundred bucks.

Not good news for Crosby
@Team1040: Sidney Crosby has left the Penguins game vs NY Islanders, after taking a Dylan Reese clearing attempt to the face.

Edit: he's ok now. back on the bench.

I wouldn't pay $135 to sit in the back upper bowl, would rather watch at home than sit in the upper bowl in general really

Agreed..but it's about being in the crowd and and being part of the atmosphere.

Being in a playoff game is an entirely different experience than going to a regular season game

Craziest game I've ever been to was the Matt Cooke tieing goal in game 7 in 04, loudest game by far

2nd would be game two of the finals last year with manny's return, I'd say that game had more emotion but even when burrows scored in ot it wasn't as crazy as the Cooke goal although I was close enough to don cherry before the game that I could have smacked him in the back of the head, that was kinda cool lol

If you've never been to a playoff game id definately recommend going to game 1 of the series

Volunteer to sell 50/50 tickets. Free entry

Not sure how they prioritize who can do it for playoffs since I'm sure demand is high, guessing based on regular season attendance.

If I recall correctly, last year's round 1 started just under $100 for crappiest seats (which is never available btw). I ended up with some $150 upper bowl, section 326 row 15 (last row).

For a playoff game, I would sit ANYWHERE in the arena. VAN vs. CHI game 7 was most epic.

For a regular season game, center ice upper (sections 308 or 323) row 1-10 aisle seats 1-2 or 101-102 have the best view. Section 308 is close to the washroom and food too.

Sat right at the Canucks tunnel (for high 5's) behind the bench. It's an experience to high 5 with players but can't see shit for game play.

Also sat right behind the penalty box at Staples Center, can't see shit with referee and the glass blocking.
