What's the deal here?
Once they got going, the crowd was definitely alive. There were empty seats but they were probably season ticket holders who decided not to go to the game. But a lot of the fans started leaving 2 minutes before the end when the cut to John and Darren. I was telling myself, the Wild better not comeback from the 2 goal deficit or they'll be kicking themselves.

And it's not a playoff game, there is bound to be some empty seats. I don't have the data but I believe the Red Wings usually have sellout crowds during the regular season without everyone showing up.
