    Hi guys.

    I’m pretty new to these boards so a big hello from Old England!

    My girlfriend and I will be coming over to Boston from the 8th to the 15th February to take in the 3 games against the Kings, Avs and Hawks. It’s all a big trip she has put together for my 40th birthday, Bruins Hockey, Sam on tap and Regina Pizza, she knows me so well!

    We have tickets for the Chicago game from Ticketmaster, pretty good looking seats in Loge 9, row 2.

    So I’m currently looking for tickets for the two other games.

    We were over in Boston a couple of years ago for the last three games of the regular season, we bought good tickets for the Caps games on Ticketmaster which cost a small fortune then managed to pick up canny tickets in the balcony for the Ottawa and TB games from the box office for I think around $70 each.

    Are there normally tickets available from the box office or did I just get lucky as it was midweek games at the end of the season?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Gotta say - super disappointed to walk in to about 6 bars near the Garden tonight and see the KC game on just about every screen. No one willing to put it on and the one place that did have it on, not willing to put the sound on. WTF Boston? Back in my ****ty AirBnB to order take out and watch the game in SD. Brutal.

    It's too bad the Penalty Box closed, they would have had the Bs. NFL is kind in the US though.

    You would have still watched it in SD at the Penalty Box though, so at least you have food haha.

    Wouldn't you like to know
    Coming in Monday for a game for the first time since they did the renovations at North Station. Is the North Station garage easier to get in and out of on game nights? or should I stick with Govt Center for parking? thx in advance!



    EDIT: NVM just looked up the price difference, f that noise lol

    It is pure chaos when a game breaks - My trick is walking across the street and then use the name of one of the many establishments ( The Fours/Sullivans) instead of TD Garden. I have found Lyft to be better around the Garden.

    You should consider these garages for much cheaper parking options than government center garage. All easy walks to the Garden. Evening rates begin after 5:00pm.

    My favorites are 100 Cambridge Street and Nautica but all are good choices.

    Center Plaza Garage
    100 Cambridge Street Garage
    Museum Of Science Garage

    In Charlestown:
    Constitution Plaza Lot
    Nautica Garage
