That's a good place to check at least. You're going to pay a lot for that game regardless...because demand is so high for those tickets.
You'll have to pay a shipping charge with stub hub, but I think you have to do that with TicketMaster as well (I could be wrong). Stub Hub sometimes has great prices on tickets...but not always. Depends on the game.
For ticket exchange (through TicketMaster), the cheapest lower level seats (only 1 available) was in section 103 for $218. The next best (4 available) is in section 143 for $225/ticket.
The cheapest lower level tickets (they're in the 200's) on Stub Hub are close to $250.
So in this case, it seems your best bet would be to check out TicketMasters ticket exchange site and order them there. There may be a couple of sites that offer them cheaper, but I don't know how trustworthy they are.
I wouldn't trust scalpers either...and I live in the city. I'm not too keen on trying e-bay either, because that's a buyer beware system as well. If you can find a reputable seller that has tickets for cheap, go for it...I'm just wary of doing business with people I don't know, online. It's probably worth the little bit of extra money to have peace of mind about the tickets you're getting.
