Bruins Becoming Hot Ticket With Marquee Showdowns Ahead Against Canucks, Rangers

by

Still hoping to get in the building to see the Bruins play the Canucks on Saturday? It looks like it will cost you.

According to SeatGeek.com, a website specializing in analyzing the secondary ticket market, tickets sold through their website are currently averaging $226.42 for the Stanley Cup Final rematch. That would make it the most expensive price for a Bruins home game all season outside of their home opener against the Philadelphia Flyers when the B's raised their championship banner.

That price has also increased substantially over the last two months as the Bruins have continued to play well. The three-day average price for tickets sold on secondary markets between Nov. 7 and Nov. 10 was $151.13, but by Christmas that average price had risen to $324.49 for tickets sold in the three days after Christmas.

That isn't a very surprising trend, however. Ticket prices have trended upward in a similar fashion for other marquee Bruins home games. For instance, the Bruins will host Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 12, and tickets sold through SeatGeek for that game are averaging $178.74, despite the Canadiens' struggles so far this season.

Nine days later, the Bruins will welcome the New York Rangers to Boston. The Rangers currently lead the Eastern Conference standings and are coming off a nationally-televised win in the 2012 Winter Classic. Average prices for the Bruins-Rangers game are currently $175.61, 34 percent higher than prices for last year?s regular season game between the two teams.

The most expensive Bruins regular season game to attend last year was the Jan. 15, 2011 matchup between the Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins, which drew average ticket prices of $144.54. This year, six Bruins home games have drawn average prices higher than this.
