It is not so much the weekday as it is the playoffs themselves. Surprisingly, the cup tourney draws smaller crowds than the regular season. This is because the Monarchs marketing team doesn't know far enough in advance when the games will be played. So the advance promotions to groups and companies and so on are not possible. The fan base is, I think, about 1/3 real hockey enthusiasts, and they are the ones who turn out in full for the Calder Cup games.
