What made the Boston Garden different was the way it put the fans right on top of the action. Like Chicago Stadium, it was designed for boxing matches so the seating was stacked steeply.
This made the Garden one of the loudest, if not THE loudest arena in the NHL. Visiting teams were at a decided disadvantage when a sell-out crowd was on its feet roaring!
