Boston Bruins Playoff Details
The Bruins are the NHL’s oldest American team, so their playoff history goes back a long way. The team won its first Stanley Cup all the way back in 1929.
In the early expansion era, the Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 1970 and 1972. The Bruins were led by Bobby Orr, who many consider to be the best defenseman in the NHL’s history. In Game 4 of the 1970 Stanley Cup Final, Orr scored the championship-clinching goal in overtime. As he scored the goal, he tripped over a defender’s stick and celebrated while soaring through the air. The photograph of Orr’s celebration captures one of the most famous playoff moments in NHL history.
The Bruins made the playoffs every season from 1968 to 1996. Their 29 year streak is the longest in North American major professional sports history.
In 2011, the Bruins reached the Stanley Cup Final and faced the first-place Vancouver Canucks. Though the Canucks struggled to score in the series, they received strong goaltending at home from Roberto Luongo, who led them to two 1-0 victories. The Bruins, however, won every game in Boston and forced a Game 7 in Vancouver. Boston’s goalie, Tim Thomas, was unbeatable in Game 7, and the Bruins won 4-0 despite being heavily outshot. Thomas was named the MVP of the playoffs.
In the first round of the 2013 playoffs, the Bruins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in one of the most improbable playoff comebacks of all time. The Leafs themselves had come back from a 3-1 series deficit to force a Game 7 in Boston. Toronto took a 4-1 lead into the third period, but Boston scored three unanswered goals — including two with the goalie pulled in the last two minutes of regulation—to tie the game and win it in overtime. Patrice Bergeron scored both the tying and winning goals for the Bruins, and the Bruins became the first team to ever come back from three goals down in the third period of a Game 7. The Bruins rode their momentum to another trip to the Stanley Cup Final, but they were defeated by the Chicago Blackhawks.
When do Bruins playoff tickets go on sale?
The NHL season goes from October to mid-April. If the Bruins are on pace to qualify for the playoffs, tickets typically go on sale around March.
How much do Bruins playoff tickets cost?
The average resale price for a ticket to a Bruins playoff game is $230. But this price is just an average, and many factors can affect the cost of a playoff ticket that may actually be above or below this average. You’ll most likely pay more to attend an elimination game, and ticket prices are likely to increase as the Bruins get closer to the Stanley Cup. There might also be more of a competitive market for a rivalry series in the first two rounds. A series between the Bruins and the Maple Leafs or Canadiens, for example, is likely to be a hot ticket.
