NEW YORK -- Super Bowl fans can prepare to pay double for the best seats. The NFL expects the most expensive tickets for its championship game will be about $2,600 each for 9,000 premium seats for the Feb. 2 game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Thats more than twice the $1,250 cost for similar tickets at last seasons Super Bowl in New Orleans. "We are looking to close the gap between the face value of the ticket and its true value as reflected on the secondary market," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Tuesday. "The uniqueness of the Super Bowl in the New York/New Jersey is also driving unprecedented demand and buzz." The next tier of seats is expected to go for $1,500 compared to $950 in New Orleans. About 40 per cent of general admission seats will be under $1,000, McCarthy said. The capacity of MetLife Stadium is 82,000, but it will be trimmed by about 5,000 seats to make room for media, cameras and security. The priciest seats will have access to indoor restaurants, where fans can warm up during the outdoor game. The lowest-priced ticket fell from $650 last year to $500. Some 30,000 fans entered a lottery that closed in June, and 1,000 winners -- double from 500 -- will be notified this fall. In an attempt to ensure those fans dont resell tickets above face value, the NFL for the first time will require ticket holders to go to a gate to pick up those tickets as they enter the stadium. They wont be allowed to return to the parking lot, McCarthy said. The Wall Street Journal first reported the increase in ticket prices.

Referee Terry Koharski disallowed it, ruling that the change took too long. A checking line, centred by Zach Sill, stayed on the ice and the teams top scoring line remained on the bench. The Penguins owe Koharski a big thank you. Sill scored the game-winning goal with 15.8 seconds left in the third period to help the Penguins stave off elimination with a 4-2 victory over the St. Johns Ice Caps in Game 5 of the American Hockey Leagues Eastern Conference finals Saturday night. "Nobody in this room wanted to stop playing hockey yet," Sill said. The IceCaps lead the series 3-2. Game 6 will be played Tuesday in St. Johns, N.L. Chuck Kobasew had a pair of goals for the Penguins while Spencer Machacek also scored. Will ONeill, meanwhile, had a goal and an assist for the second straight game for the IceCaps, who also got a single from Patrice Cormier. Michael Hutchinson made 30 saves for the IceCaps. Peter Mannino stopped 19 shots for the Penguins. With the score tied 2-2 in the final minute, Tom Kostopoulos threw a puck into the crease from the right-wing corner. Harry Zolnierczyk kept it alive at the near post and Sill took a shot that banked off the far post, off Hutchinson and in. "It went off the post and my heart sank foor a minute, then it went off his glove and into the net and that was exciting," Sill said.dddddddddddd Kobasew added an empty netter with 6.1 seconds left. He also tied the score 2-2 with 7:30 left in regulation, finishing off a cross-ice pass from Andrew Ebbett at the right faceoff dot at the end of a long offensive-zone shift for the Penguins. Kobasew, who missed the last two games, and Ebbett, who missed the last 11, were making their return from injury for the Penguins. "Its good to be back together. Weve played a lot together this season," Kobasew said. "Just a good shift by all five guys out there. We were able to hem them in." ONeill scored on a 5-on-3 power play to give St. Johns
