|Panthers promise to show Red Sox vs. Tigers as Tim Thomas faces Bruins||10.17.13 at 1:17 pm ET|
SUNRISE, Fla. — The Panthers will do anything to get people to the BB&T Center Thursday night. You don’t even need to be there for the hockey — they’ll gladly make it a sports bar if you’d rather catch the ALCS.
Notice the * Red Sox vs Tigers game to be played on TV’s throughout the arena [sic] part. The Panthers are reaaaaaaaally trying to sell some tickets with Thomas. They’re offering a three-game Tim Thomas pack, which is tickets to both home games against the Bruins, tickets to another Panthers game and a meet-and-greet with Thomas with $99.
Furthermore, the team announced on Twitter yesterday that Thomas, who was working his way back from a groin injury, would be starting. It’s highly unusual for a team to do that a day before a game, but the Panthers clearly want people at this game.

So if they’re going as far as they’ve already gone with this, why not sweeten the pot a little more for B’s fans attending the game? Get your Tim Thomas package here.

When the NHL debuted outdoor hockey on New Year’s Day 2008, the Boston Bruins were not exactly on the radar of those planning showcase events for the league.
But as the sun shone down on Fenway Park on Wednesday, the spotlight could not have been brighter or more welcome for Boston and its beloved hockey team.
Not only did it appear real summer weather had arrived in Boston after a brutal spring, but it appears the NHL is warming to Boston as a showcase city for its sport on the world stage. The Bruins will play the Philadelphia Flyers on Jan. 1, 2010 in the NHL “Winter Classic.”
“This is so great for the organization,” Bruins Vice President Cam Neely said following Wednesday’s ceremony atop the first base dugout. “It’s great for our fans. We’ve kind of been working our way out of where we were maybe up until the last couple of years. I think this is just another great stepping stone for us being relevant, not only here in the local market, but league-wide.” Read the rest of this entry »
