While the tickets for Boston have just gone on sale, remember Blue Jackets tickets sold out almost immediately.
Travel agents Ike Reynolds say it is even tougher to get tickets to away hockey games.
“Away hockey game tickets have always been a problem,” said Reynolds. “Each team limits how many visitors they want to have in the stadium to be making noise for the team other than their own.”
Even if you are able to score a ticket, it will come with a not so pretty price.
“Generally speaking, maybe unless you’re a high-level season ticket holder with the Blue Jackets, that the normal fan is going to be able to access a ticket online,” said Reynolds. “They’re going to most likely be through a broker-driven game ticket.”
Should you get that “golden ticket,” Reynolds explained that you can call him or pretty much any other travel agent to make your plans.
