Is it me or the audience at the arena is bigger over the last couple of games ?



Typical trend.

Kids are out of school / college and tickets are frequently given as gifts.

Immediately following Christmas is always a fun time to go.

edit: beaten.

Devs had something like 3 straight sell outs at some point recently so it probably has been up with some marque games and honoring people. Heck they honor Patryk and you will probably see another. Seriously, I love Elias giving it up to the crowd as well.

Let's not go overboard with the crowds. Under 16,000 tonight and Wednesday. Not impressive but not terrible. Crowds look big because the Rock is small that 14000 in the building would look like an okay crowd.

Well, that's great! The stupid hosts of NHL Tonight spend several minutes going over the Canes/Sabres games but the Cats/Devs game is just a footnote. And to add insult to injury that arsehole old man said that we're just a bubble team that can't crack the top 8. Well we're in 7th right now, Prick!

Solid win. Patty- a goal and 2 assists in game #1,000. Love it. Loved his post-game interview too, great stuff. Great night at the Rock!

Whoa whoa who woulda though, freaken Kovalchuck. Hopefully he gets some more against a tired and pissed off Penguins team. Can we please win and move up in the Atlantic that would be so so very nice :boogie:
Happy they won tonight. Much better 3rd period then what we are used to i'm guessing.
I went to the gym and took my chances with phone updates.

If the Devils went on a 6-7 game win streak you'd see even more sell outs.

Was on a plane during the game, but looks like a nice, solid win. Does anyone have a video of Elias's comments?

feedback from the highlight...

- glad to see Henrique burying another one and getting another assist
- Kovalchuk first goal i think is exactly what we should see and get from Kovy
- Cant believe Versteeg missed that open net LOL he had all the time in the world

I don't think people realize how HUGE tomorrow's game is. If the Devils win they wouldn't just hop over the Pens in both the Atlantic and Conference but they would only be 2 pts behind the Flyers for 2nd in the Atlantic and 4th in the conference. This year is SUPER weird. They started the night in 9th place and look at those possibilities. Now I understand why all you guys get so mad at me lol

I will be a very happy man if they win tomorrow. I don't see why they shouldn't be able too. The Pens will be looking for revenge but hopefully the meeting we had stays in the Devils heads and they take tonights win with them and play the same if not better. LGD ! ! !

And to make matters even better..I just found the NHL Network HD channel on Comcast YES! :evil:

That was Versteeg who broke his stick when he had a wide open net. The Madden play was before that.

I like the Devils putting out Elias in between Kovy and Parise for some of the defensive zone draws. Neither Henrique nor Elias are going to beat great faceoff guys that often, but Elias is going to put in better defense once the draw is one.

On the flipside, I also dislike this because the Devils only 2 lines tonight, so using up basically 2 offensive lines on defensive zone draws left way too many times that the 3rd or 4th line would take the offensive zone draws.

Also, Janssen played 2 minutes tonight and was -1. He's been garbage all the season, it's ridiculous he's ever in the lineup.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

It actually 'did' look like more both nights though (Wednesday is hearsay cause I wasn't there but from what I read it sounded like more than the paid attendance and it sure looked that way tonight). Especially since the lower bowl was pretty filled believe it or not. Granted the upper corners were still the usual ghost town but unless they were literally giving away tickets and didn't count them I'd say tonight looked over 16,000. The Devils do have a habit of shifting around the books a bit...underreporting some games and overreporting others.
