So glad I went too, and I was one of those that said "steal a point". The crowd atmosphere was good and happy to see the organization letting everyone come down to the lower bowl. Was kinda funny seeing the people that work the seating area keep kicking fans out of the black seats though that were trying to sneak in there.
haha The Lower Bowl was loud and roudy for once!! It's amazing how the experience down there gets better once they allow all the crazies from the Uppers to come down, it's usually so quiet down there.
Volchenkov has been outplaying Salvador pretty handily the last dozen games. Captain Sal has been a trainwreck in the defensive zone, while Volch has been solid. I hope they somehow keep him over Bryce, but I wouldn't count on that.
I agree, I'm eating crow on Volchenkov, as he's been doing a great job for us for about a month, maybe more. Salvador sticks out like a sore thumb on this team now, every single game; worst player on the ice, game-in, game-out.
