Episode 46 of the Eastern Bias Hockey Podcast, featuring Joe Gravellese of BC Interruption and Shep Hayes of Bloggin' on Babcock, is now available.
This week, Joe and Shep dish for a while on two topics they think a lot about - Hockey East TV coverage and ticket prices. They react to Joe Bertagna's interview with the WEEI PuckCast, in which he talks about TV and scheduling issues. What did he say that made sense, and what didn't?
The ticket price issue was relevant as Joe just paid $25 per ticket to go see BC play at Northeastern on Sunday - and wound up witnessing it in a 1/3-full Matthews Arena. Have some schools set the price too high? What's a fair price to charge for a Hockey East game?
Turning to on ice topics, Joe and Shep react to BC's weekend against Northeastern, which was salvaged by a dramatic third period rally on Sunday afternoon to give the Eagles a 4-3 victory and 3 points on the weekend. Elsewhere in Hockey East, BU split with Vermont; UNH and Maine renewed hostilities; and #ICEBUS regained some icebus magic with a shocking weekend sweep over UMass Lowell.
