It just feels pretty flat to go from so many consecutive sell outs in the playoffs to a half empty lower bowl again. On the home opener.
The lockout didn't seem to kill momentum (despite the huffing and puffing til now) as it seems people are chomping at the bit to get back to watching hockey again.

The atmosphere is always great in the upper levels, so there's no criticism about that.
Just was hoping for a packed house to get the season started off well.

...and god just looking at my twitter feed right now, it just looks like the Devils are guilt tripping us all
There were literally thousands of Devil fans on Long Island Saturday, and at least a thousand at their super-secret sth viewing party at the Rock itself so you're right, the lockout didn't kill buzz here any more than it did anywhere else but it's gonna look that way tomorrow.
