Red Sox Driving Down Ticket Prices For Bruins Home Opener
It’s rare to see any correlation between baseball and hockey tickets. However, with the Red Sox opening their 2013 division series tomorrow afternoon at Fenway Park and Bruins ticket prices for Thursday night’s opener down 31%, this may be one of those rare times. It appears that fans in Boston have decided they would rather spend their money on Red Sox tickets and catch tonight’s Bruins game on the tube. With the Sox being the owners of the league’s best record and making their first playoff appearance in four years, we can’t really blame them. To put things in a little perspective, last year, Bruins tickets their home opener against the Rangers averaged over $250 a seat, which is more than double the current $115 price for tonight’s opener against the Lightning. In fact, this isn’t just the case for the opener. Prices for their game on Saturday against the Red Wings are also down, falling 28% in the last week. For fans looking to head out to TD tonight and Saturday this is good news since there are now plenty of great deals available for both games.
