As annoying as they were they weren't as annoying as the guy behind me yelling "Let's Go Devils" every two seconds for at least 10 minutes of the third. Most of it was during Bruins possession in the neutral zone. Again timing is everything.

These yutzes were more annoying with the thundersticks than the three kids behind me were. At least the dad of the kids noticed I was shuddering everytime one of them banged those sticks during the middle of play for no reason and told the kids they could only do it when something was going on like a song or goal or cheer.
I think I'll take one of my old towels with me tonight.

Granted, I have only been to one playoff game, and the atmosphere was electric.. Game 2, ECQF, 2000, but this was after the Worrell/Niedermayer incident.. building was ready for playoff hockey.
The type of game the Devils play isn't one you can cheer. I mean honestly, how much was there to cheer about in the third other than some forechecking and the odd shot on goal?
The "hit him" people always crack me up. Do these people ever watch hockey? I mean, honestly.

One night, when we were beating the pants off the Isles, everyone was in unison, pointing at & screaming "Hrudey, Hrudey, Hrudey".
You know, the player cannot ignore that.!
So they were better than towels or sticks - but of course you had the odd dolts who had swordfights at every chance during the games, same problem as the sticks - but quieter.
I guess we'll just have to be happy with the "Marty's Better" chant (when we faceoff against some quality netminders).

That's annoying. Or maybe.....
Booing the Devils in and Eastern Conference like Game 2 against the Pens in 2001. Or perhaps half the arena leaving early because they are losing.
I love this team, but I'm sickened by how unloyal our fans are. Not all, but quite a few. Like I said when I started this thread, we are a fickle bunch.

The fans were a lot better with them in game 2. Bigger crowd helped, but the noise level was definitely up in good part due to the thunderstix(the package says cheerstix.).
I think the thunderstix are awesome. Red, white and black towels would look really cool too.
