Red Hockey Hockey Feature: BU in the Big Apple

With the BU-Cornell game at Madison Square Garden just days away, The Terrier Hockey Fan Blog offers several special historical articles. The first, “BU in the Big Apple” looks at the previous eight Terrier games played at Madison Square Garden III and Madison Square Garden IV—the current venue—beginning with an exhibition game in 1926 against the St. Nicholas Hockey Club and continuing with three ECAC Holiday Festival appearances. The article, prepared by blog contributor mh82, is posted under “Terrier Tales” in the sidebar to the right and you also can access it from this link.

Look at the price on your game ticket for Saturday. When Madison Square Garden held its first hockey games in 1925, the price of admission was 15-cents. In case you missed it earlier this month, here’s a link to a history of Madison Square Garden.

We'll post links to another original article, this one looking back at memorable BU-Cornell clashes, later this week. And please check back for the announcement of an exciting new feature on The Terrier Hockey Fan Blog.

Also related to the Red Hot Hockey game at MSG, we've been asked to report that there will be a gathering of BU fans, alumni and other supporters following Saturday night’s game at “Professor Thom’s” located at 219 Second Avenue (between 13th and 14th). Our sources say this is a BU friendly spot that can accommodate a fairly large crowd.

The game is no longer a “virtual” sellout; Cornell has announced that all seats have been sold.

Since it's obvious that I'm not going to pay to see BU play Cornell in MSG - unless it was 15 cents today! - out of curiosity what were the ticket prices for this year's game?
