Hockey fans eager to learn about ticket availability and pricing for the upcoming Jan. 1 Winter Classic at Fenway, in which the Bruins will face the Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park, finally will learn those details on Monday when the NHL reveals the details online at nhl.com/winterclassic.
According to the NHL, the information will be posted at approximately noon, ET.
The event this past Jan. 1 drew a sold-out crowd of 41,818 to Wrigley Park in Chicago to see the Blackhawks and Red Wings square off in the league's second Winter Classic. Demand for seating to that event exceeded 240,000.
No telling where pricing will fall for the smaller Fenway Park, where seating capacity is expected to be under 40,000. But based on the game in Chicago and the 2008 game in Orchard Park, N.Y., a good seat here in the Hub of Hockey likely will be priced around $250.
All Bruins season ticket holders who have full season-ticket packages have been guaranteed the right to purchase tickets to the Jan. 1 game, which will begin at 1 p.m.
