If you are planning on buying tickets this year, start saving now. Ticket prices have gone up once again (Delaware North most be trying to fund a new racino in West Virginia or something). It will cost you at least $121.50 to get a ticket downstairs ($141.50 for "Gold Level Games").
The Bruins did bring back their Student Night tickets for $29.50 balcony seats. Something tells me that there will be a lot of balding 35 year old "college students" at The Garden this year. I knew I saved that old college ID for a reason.
10 Game Mini Plans are also on sale. Last year the "Hungry for Hockey" 5 game mini-plan was the best deal going. For $39.80 a game you got a balcony ticket and access to an all-you-can-eat concession area. This year, those same tickets increased to $65 a ticket and a 10 game minimum. I guess you will just have to eat an extra $25 worth of luke warm hotdogs to make it worthwhile this year.
To put the Bruins fan fleecing in prospective, you can buy season tickets for the Tampa Bay Lightning ($239) for less than a seat on the glass for one "Gold Level Game" at The TD Garden ($289.50).
