Bump - couple of ticket options for the October 15 game

  • Group tickets - we have a group of 5 already, 10 more and we are able to get $50 per seat entry, and get a group announcement on the jumbotron. This would not suck.
  • Early sale on August 14 for NV, UT, WY, ID, and MT residents with corresponding billing addresses - anyone who fits this bill on SoSH willing to let me paypal/venmo them the price of 8 seats and snag the seats on my behalf?
  • General sale starts 2 hours after early sale

Long time lurker here... I've contributed nothing so far to this forum which is probability for the best. I'm an MA native, lived in Boston for a while but now reside in Denver. I have a bunch of friends from Boston coming out for the 10/11 games @ Avs and then we are headed to Vegas for the 10/15 game. If you're interested in grouping up, there is 8 of us so far which get's a close to that crap 15 seat limit. I have a friend who lives right out side of Vegas so he could also help us out assuming he feels charitable. Thoughts?

Awesome, thanks for the heads up, I emailed their tickets catch-all email to see if there are any upper level packages available for 10/15. Even if we have a couple extras, it likely cancels out the premium of the individual game prices, and resale would cover us worst case.

Failing that, getting a jump on the single game seats with a NV address would be great, but I assume you guys would use that for your group given the 8 ticket limit per address in the local resident presale?

I'm asking my buddy if he can recruit one more person who lives there to buy the additional presale tickets if need be. I don't think it will be a problem, I'll just have to front the money. I'll keep you in the loop.
Would your group have any interest in going one section down if the pricing isn't that much of in increase? Say no more than $75 a seat? Just for options sake.

Yeah I think getting lower level for anything under $100 is definitely reasonable. We can venmo you whenever you need the money

There are group seat packages available - $100 per seat for upper bowl (on one of the blue lines, not center ice), $155 for lower bowl, which seems a bit steep on both counts.

May make more sense to go stubhub / general sale if the prices are in the same neighborhood?

Sorry was away for the weekend - I'll check back with my group and see how they feel about that.

I was fully planning on attending this and hopefully meeting up with some SoSHers but I just realized I'm out of town that weekend. I can help though if anyone needs local ticket help. I put down a deposit for season tickets but changed my mind so I'll be applying the deposit to single seats. I think that means I'll have early access to any good seats still left.

No worries, thanks @Vegas Sox Fan - if you (or any of the residents in @Yclept101's group) have insight into what the single game ticket prices are for that game / if we can do considerably better per seat than the $100 / seat for a group package, definitely willing to go that route - otherwise, a group package of ~15-20 (our group has grown to 6-7, plus Yclept's 8, plus potentials / resales) may be ideal.

@The Napkin wanted to make sure you're also in the loop in case you decide to also head out for this game

(Also at this point, may be worth breaking out into its own bash forum thread or something, sorry for the clutter)

Per the ticket rep, re: $100 / seat balcony seats or $115 / seat lower bowl:

The lowest row we have would be Section 207 or 221 in Row N – so about 14 rows up; the only lower level seats left are in the ends (Section 19 is the last spot available).

Just for reference with seating I've provided the seating chart. I'm pretty sure the pricing on the left is for season tickets.

As for my group, we're looking to get closer but that doesn't sound possible at this point based on what you're saying. It's only section 207, 221, and 19 that has seats available?

For a block of 15+ that's correct. May make more sense to split up and have local residents nab 8 seats per group?

Yea, it seems the majority of our group is looking for lower bowl seats and higher on the price point. Admittedly, not all that happy about pricing but whatever.

@Vegas Sox Fan based on your comments, can you help @PedroSpecialK and that group get the local pre-sale tickets on Monday, August 14th?

I should be fine on my end and getting tickets.

If you guys are down, figure out a bar to meet up before the game and get the mass Bruins fans together for drinks?

Just a forewarning, I've never been to Vegas and I'll be away from the family, so I'll probably be going HAM. I might need someone to help keep me alive.
Now I'm really pissed that I'm missing this.

FYI, they were trying to sell me half season tickets about a month ago and they still had glass seats open.

Finally split this out into its own thread. I'm almost positive I can't go but holding out slim hope that I can.

Between here and everywhere.
Shit why am I just seeing this now?

Are we going Hangover style and renting a suite and splitting the costs, or are we going to be on our own for accommodations? (and if so, anyone looking to go halfsies?)

I'll have to look at flight costs and work schedule for this, but I would love to be in on this if it's not too late.

Hey you filthy animals, within the next week the digital tickets for this game will be delivered and I'm currently sitting on 4-5 extra tickets (I got the 15 ticket group package). If any of you are interested or know someone who is, I'm happy to sell them at face value. You'll also be sitting with a bunch of Bruins fans, so we'll have ourselves a nice little party.

Section 104, Row 10-ish (we have two rows, up against the isle), $127 per ticket
FYI, this is on the side where the Bruins shoot twice

They are Flash Seat tickets so I can transfer them that way or just join the party ahead of time for drinks and we can all go in together.
