But don't expect us to believe that you know the intention/mood of the fans in that game.
That's not the point though, what is important in this is that the crowd cheered when Staal was helped off the ice. That's the exact opposite of heckling a player. I am not pretending to know anything, I am just saying that if you claim that fans were heckling Staal, then you were not paying attention to what was actually going on because they did not heckle him.
I also had a "home team reaction" at first (booing the referees for changing the 2 min to 5 min GM), but then calmed down realizing it was the right call. I think that's kind of normal, and it has nothing to do with the other player, Staal in this case.
