It was indeed the lowest season opener crowd in the franchise's history. But the building wasn't empty and it didn't sound empty. There was a very good atmosphere.

Anyways, these guys get used to playing in front of nobody. Weekday and Sunday crowds are brutal in most AHL towns, including Hartford. Always have been, always will be.
