I want to get tickets for the Capitals/Canadiens game on November 20, but Ticketmaster doesn't seem to think the game even exists. Am I looking too soon? When do individual game tickets go on sale?

You're better off calling the Caps ticket office directly. Single game tickets are very sparse this year, and likely will be for the near future. I believe they're on sale now, as I got a marketing call yesterday.

Okay, thanks. I have a Ticketmaster gift card, so I was hoping to use that.

I had the same experience; not all of the games were listed, and I couldn't get tickets for any of the ones that were on the calendar.

I honestly think they oversold season ticket packages and will regret alienating a lot of the fanbase that relies on single-game tickets to get to games. No idea exactly what percentage of season tickets were sold last year but it seemed like I heard an utterly ridiculous number on the order of 16k, which would leave around 2k for non-season ticket holders. No idea if this is the norm for a popular team, but it seems a bit high.

Ugh. So basically, those of us that can't afford/don't want season ticket packages are out of luck.

Heh, well even those of us who can afford/want season ticket packages are out of luck! I recommend TicketExchange via Ticketmaster. It's usually slightly less gouging than you find on Stubhub.
