New York Rangers @ New Jersey Devils (Game 3) Prudential Center, Newark, N.J.
The NHL Eastern Conference Finals have stirred up an old rivalry, and on Saturday it crosses the Hudson and come to New Jersey for Game 3. The Rangers come in as the number 1 seed in the East, but may be a little worse for wear having fought through two long, tough rounds to get here. With the 6 seed Devils getting hot at just the right time it looks to be an exciting series. Though tickets start at $200, they do seem to be considerably cheaper than the games at Madison Square Garden, and hockey fans might be able to catch a price break by heading to New Jersey for the series.
