I'm sure you'd get a better answer on the Boston board.

It's gonna be tough to find a bar with the game on because the Red Sox play Saturday night too. Most bars will have the Sox game on the primary TV's and the B's on just a couple. Unfortunate, but the Red Sox are king in Boston.

TV ratings strongly disagree with you.

The Red Sox may be the most popular team in town, but what your saying is an exaggeration.

I live in boston and this is just bs. As for where to watch, if you want crowded, any major bar around garden will have it. I like greatest bar only because of the large screen downstairs

Nope. The Bruins this season averaged about a 7. I can guarantee the Sox will easily beat that. Hell, last year which was the worst Sox teams in decades beat it.

You don't want to compare playoff ratings either. The Bruins are in the low-mid 20s now. Red Sox playoff games destroy that.

We're comparing the Bruins' SCF game to a regular season Sox game. The bruins will certainly trump that.

I went to a bar in LI for one of the games of the NYR/Caps series and had to ask them to change one of the TVs that had the Mets on. The Mets over playoff hockey. I'm a Mets fan and even I thought it was ridiculous.

This is very wrong. When its an scf game vs. a regular season baseball game. They are going championship game 100% of time.

The Harp, Hurricane O'Reilly's, The Greatest Bar are my favorites right near the Garden. Other places are Jose Macntyre's, Coogan's, Kitty O'Sheas

Just got back from Boston where I watched both games 1 and 2 in bars. This is wrong. Boston is all about the Bruins right now and it will be on with sound in every sports bar worth its salt. I'm partial to McGreevy's on Boylston

Red Sox are hardly the king right now. Bruins have EASILY been the most popular team since the playoffs started. The Celtics are on decline, and I think the Bruins have taken them over anyway. Patriots aren't playing, and it's the middle of the season for baseball.

Every single bar will have the Bruins game on. Ever since 2011 the Bruins have been the hottest ticket in town when they're playing. People finally gave them a chance again with the rest of our teams disappointing, and they liked what they saw.

Red Sox might be the most popular of the Boston sports, but the Bruins SCF game >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> a regular season game.

Bruins have passed the Red Sox in Boston, and are second to only the Patriots. Red Sox have a bigger national and international following, but try getting a Bruins regular season ticket compared to even a Red Sox Yankees ticket. B's sell for 2X, 3X, 4X more
