NHL’s latest lockout is a costly one
As the league’s latest timeout drags on, the Bruins are losing out on $3 million per game, and each canceled date deprives local businesses of up to $1 million
The Boston Bruins were scheduled to host the Phoenix Coyotes Monday night at TD Garden, but for the 15th time this season the arena was dark, costing the team another $3 million in tickets and related spending. The NHL lockout also is inflicting collateral damage on nearby bars and restaurants — between $850,000 and $1 million per game, according to the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau. Eighty days into the off-ice fight, representatives of the NHL and its players union remain far apart.
