Das Stadion war für Anforderungen der Zeit nicht mehr ausreichend und so erbaute man nach Plänen von Boxpromoter Tex Rickard der bereits den Madison Square Garden in New York entworfen hatte, den Boston Garden der anfänglich „Boston Madison Square Garden“ heißen sollte. Mit einer Kapazität von 14.890 Zuschauer war er die Heimat, die sich die Bruins gewünscht hatten. Die Lage des Stadions war ideal, da es sehr nah am Zentrum und direkt an der Boston North Station eine Knotenpunkt für den öffentlichen Verkehr lag. Über 60 Jahre spielten die Bruins in diesem Stadion und feierten dort ihre größten Erfolge, sodass noch vieler Erinnerungen der Fans in und um Boston an der alten Spielstätte hängen. Den Zuschauerrekord stellte man etwas unfreiwillig schon im November 1928 auf. Der Andrang bei einem Spiel gegen die Montréal Canadiens war so groß, dass die Ordner die Kontrolle über die Türen verloren und das Stadion mit geschätzten 17.000 Zuschauern überfüllt war. Auch die Bruins, die in dieser Saison den Stanley Cup gewinnen konnten, verloren an diesem Abend mit 1:0. Im Boston Garden hatte die Bruins Anfang der 90er Jahre einen Zuschauerschnitt von über 14.000. Das Stadion war damit mit etwa 95 Prozent ausgelastet. Der Eintrittspreis lag in der letzten Saison im alten Stadion bei moderaten 40,83 Dollar.
This is the first and only time I've ever felt the need to review any place. I ordered a custom jersey back in early December and was told it would take 3-4 weeks. Well my first complaint was that the jersey was completed in the time frame, however, for some reason they didn't charge for shipping initially and didn't save my phone number so they had no way of letting me know it was ready to ship. When I finally called looking for it, they told me the story and put it in the mail. The jersey I received was awful. The lettering on the back was completely crooked and looked like a knock off. I got on the phone and the shop apologized and said if I sent it back, they would replace it. A month later, I was told my new jersey was in the mail. This time, individual letters were crooked, and one of the letters was a different color (gold vs. yellow). After playing phone tag with the shop yet again, I'm told my only options are to return the jersey for another one (third time's a charm?) or get my money back. I have multiple jerseys from the shop and none are even close to this bad. I even went as far as calling friends and looking at their similar jerseys from the last 2-3 years, and none compare to the ones that I was sent. For this kind of money, I find it to be a joke. I was nothing but patient with everyone there who tried to help me, assuming that it was because of the holidays that my initial jersey was messed up, but after 3 months and 2 botched jerseys, needless to say, I won't be spending my money at the the pro shop any more.
The staff at Boston ProShop are AMAZING! I took my little brother in the store after he was upset th...at his friend received a puck from the ice and he did not. I purchased a puck without him knowing and one of the staff members Brian went above and beyond to give it to my brother and play along and say it was a puck off the ice. He told my brother he just shagged it for him and my brother was ecstatic! He was so kind to him and it really made his day. See More
