What to Know for Sunday's Championship Game
Heading to the Burlington High School boys hockey title game on Sunday night? Here's what you need to know before you head out the door.
As you probably know by now, the Burlington High School boys hockey team is headed to TD Garden in Boston for the Division 1 state championship game.
But there's plenty more you need to know before Sunday's game. So as you get ready to support the Red Devils, here are five pieces of useful information to get you ready for the contest.
Game Time in Boston: Puck drops on the championship game at 8:15 p.m. inside TD Garden. The Red Devils will take on Marshfield, a team that has lost the last two state championship tilts in a row. Last year Burlington dominated Milton from the start as it skated to a championship win.
Tickets to TD Garden: If you are making the trip to see the game in person, purchasing seats in advance can save you a few dollars. Buying tickets online and printing them at home in advance of the game will cost fans $10.95, while spectators who purchase their tickets at the door will pay $15.
Leave Extra Travel Time: Burlington hopes to find the luck of the Irish on Sunday. But if you are travelling into Boston on St. Patrick's Day, you won't want to push your luck. The South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The parade itself won't cause traffic around TD Garden, but you are going to want to leave extra travel time as an increased number of people are expected in the city on the holiday. In addition, if you plan on taking public transportation, you may also want to leave early because of the increased volume of travelers.
Who to Watch For: Not familiar with the Red Devils? If you're heading to your first BHS hockey game, we've got you covered. Things begin in the back with senior captain Derek DeCastro, who is a standout goalie that helped the team to the final with a sparkling performance in Monday's shootout win. On offense, J.P. Scola, C.J. Grinnell, and Joey Scali are among the players you'll see taking shots on the Marshfield net. Sean Costa and Adam Crowley are among the Red Devils who will skate on defense.
How to Follow if You Can't Make the Game: Stuck at home and can't make the game? No need to fret. Just like we did during the North Division 1 final, Burlington Patch will be live chatting from the game. From the comfort of your own home, you'll be able to receive up to the second updates as if you are at the game. Check back for more details on where to go for the chat.
