You say they have little meaning but that was the difference between playing the Isles and Habs or the Devils and Leafs. The regular season games are just as important as playoff games now.

Im just struck by the lack of atmosphere and passion at a lot of games. Its totally different here, for example, a team was 5-0 down and they got a song going for a good 15-20 minutes non stop. I suppose its just an example of cultural differences.
