Would tend to agree that TV mutes the crowd noise a bit. The last game I was at was HNIC against the Habs, and even though the Canucks played awful, the crowd was great. A lot of that was the back and forth between the two teams fans though. Definitely a few fights in the building that night.
Second to last visit was game seven against Chicago two years ago. Not sure 18, 000 people could be quieter after Toews scored to tie it in the dying minutes. And then obviously the roof was blown off when Burrows won it.
I'm probably not the best judge, since I would rather spend an extra few bucks to go see the big matchups/playoff games than to go see Columbus or something on a Tuesday night.
On a side note, I seem to notice more fights in the lower bowl than the upper bowl. I'm wondering if it has something to do with a hipster type telling a rowdy fan to keep it down.
