Bruins attendance is embarassing
This season the Bruins have only sold out one game ( the home opener vs the Flames). They have had only 3 games all season where there were more than 16,000 people at the Garden. The past 5 games, the attendance has been awful, especially the last game where only 10,965 people attended. Their season average has been 13,787, about 4,000 less than what the Garden can actually fit. This is an embarassing figure but is common with many teams located in the United States. It seems as if the "new NHL" isn't so great after all in regards to getting more people interested in hockey.
