The Red Sox and Fenway Sports Management (FSM) today announced Wednesday that game times for the January 14 hockey doubleheader -- Catholic Memorial-Boston College High School and Northeastern-BC -- have been moved to earlier start times of 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. The games were originally scheduled to start at 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
The change was made after the announcement from the NFL that the Patriots will host a Divisional Playoff game at 8:00 p.m. on January 14 at Gillette Stadium.
“In addition to paying proper respect to the New England Patriots, this change will allow existing ticket holders for the January 14th hockey doubleheader to attend the games at Fenway Park while still having enough time to head home to root on the Patriots,” said Red Sox Executive Vice President/COO Sam Kennedy. “We always make an effort to ensure fans are able to enjoy as many of their favorite sports teams as possible, and hope the vast majority will appreciate this change so they can enjoy both a hockey doubleheader and the Patriots playoff game.”
Gates for the doubleheader will now open at 12:00 p.m.
