I was trying to show the last time they came here during the week. I also disagree with the Spring Training=Higher NHL attendance idea. It would mean that a lot of folks would be going to a game at 1pm and then heading over for a hockey game at 6pm. I think the Coyotes suffer during this period since families usually dont do both and obviously changing out your cloths is another challenge (I have done it before though but I dont see it being a regular event).

But 2 years ago on Jan 4, 2011 the attendance was around 9,000 for a CBJ game during the week. This is why I think it will be around 10,000 tonight which would be an 11% increase. A lot of people want attendance to jump through the roof immediately are not being realistic.
