so no those wernt saved tickets, as for boston, i dunno, hoenstly the people up there have been to wrapped up in football, baseball and even basketball to really give to ****s about the bruins.
i just dont think there is any comparing a us city to hockey in montreal or toronto, so anybody laying claim to the title hockey town is a joke. Altho atleast in minneapolis its fans that buy the tickets its not all corporate like detroit and colorado, and its not empty like pittsburgh and new jersey.
Its "Hockeytown USA" bro. That officially eliminates Toronto and Montreal.
As far as Boston goes, it's always been the Red Sox #1 and the Bruins #1a. Add to that the college tourney they run each year that packs the house. It's drop the puck time all the time in Boston bro. That's the only other city I can think of in America that can compete with Philly.
