Early on in the 2014-2015 season, the loyalty for Boston Bruins fans is being tested and their expectations thwacked due to a litany of injuries that have led the Bruins to limp their way into early December. Star center David Krejci has missed multiple games so far with a bad hip and groin. Zdeno Chara hasn’t been seen since October. Adam McQuaid is out two months with a thumb, a sizable absence given the 50 games the bruising defenseman missed last season. Below are ticket prices for Bruin home games in December at TD Bank Garden.
12/11 vs. Chicago Blackhawks | Average Price: $214.08 | Get-in: $84
The Bruins’ 2012 Stanley Cup loss to the Chicago Blackhawks still stings; the team remembers getting outworked at the tail end of that series, and, as a result, approaches matchups against the Blackhawks’ with a high-energy mentality. Tickets to the Blackhawks-Bruins skate are $214.08 on average. More affordable seats are $84 on the secondary market.
12/13 vs. Ottawa Senators | Average Price: $199.16 | Get-in: $84
The Bruins have generally had the Sens’ number. Since 2010, the team is 20-7 against its divisional foe in Ottawa. Tickets to the Senators vs. Bruins on the secondary market are $199.16. Get-in prices are only $84, however.
12/21 vs. Buffalo Sabres | Average Price: $171.78 | Get-in: $68
Middling as the Sabres might be these days, the Bruins can’t seem to get past them all that consistently; the Bruins are just 5-5 against them the past two years. Tickets on the secondary market to this pre-Christmas tilt between the Sabres and Bruins are $171.78. Get-in rates are just $68, though.
12/23 vs. Nashville Predators | Average Price: $179.41 | Get-in: $68
The first half of the season hasn’t been all that kind to the Bruins and they’ll look to find some momentum before the Christmas break in a game against the Western Conference Predators, now Barry Trotz-less...imagine that. Tickets on the secondary market to the Predators-Bruins are $179.41, with get-in rates sitting at $68.
12/29 vs. Detroit Red Wings | Average Price: $233.56 | Get-in: $99
After the Christmas break, the Bruins will get back into their schedule with a matchup against the Detroit Red Wings, a time that has stifled it during the regular season (though the Bruins’ fared better last postseason). Tickets on the secondary market to the Red Wings-Bruins are an expensive $233.56. Get-in rates are $99 though.
