In contrast, in Game 3 in Edmonton, the cheapest ticket skyrockets to $989 and the most expensive reaches $8,466. It is nearly double that of Game 1's highest price.

NHL fans reacted to the staggering difference in the Oilers and Panthers' home ice ticket prices for the the 2024 Stanley Cup Final.

"Hockey is all Edmonton has. What's your point?" one fan wrote on.
"Give me a parlay so I can afford to go to game 2," another fan tweeted.
"Who the actual **** can afford to go to these games? I went to one R1 game in Sunrise and that’s it," expressed a frustrated fan.
"I thought disney was expensive. Normal blue collar family can’t even go watch their team in the cup finals without digging into their savings," one fan commented.
"Prices actually came down quite a bit from when they first went on sale in the secondary market. Saw 1100 for Sunrise Game 1 in a section I like to sit in, now those same seats are 500. It's game 5 and 7 that is getting bid up quite a bit (most likely to see the Cup raised)," noted another fan.
"Florida = Hockey Town," wrote a proud fan

Stuart Skinner fights challenges to get Oilers to Stanley Cup Final

Stuart Skinner, the Edmonton Oilers goalie, comes from a competitive background. Despite initial resistance from his parents, he pursued goaltending and eventually excelled in the NHL.

“Growing up, my parents did not want me to play goalie and it took a lot of convincing, I asked them a whole bunch and I just did it,” Skinner said (via NHL.com)

Skinner faced criticism during the playoffs but proved himself. Despite doubts, he outperformed expectations and led his team to the Stanley Cup Final.

Skinner himself acknowledges the challenges ahead but remains focused on the task at hand.

“It’s just an enjoyable moment to kind of look back and see the whole process of where we are today. It’s an amazing feat,” Skinner said. “But we have a ton more work to do and more enjoyable experiences to go through and a lot more adversity to go through."

Skinner is ready to tackle the pressure of the Stanley Cup Finals.
