crowd needs to be pumped up on Saturday. Much like tonight.
I can pretty much guarantee that the house will be packed Saturday night. Lots of fans show up for Philly, plus the Thrashers always pull their best attendance by a good margin on weekends (esp. Saturday) when people can actually get in and out of the city in less than an hour.
I convinced some people that I know from my History class in college to go see this game as they had never been to a hockey game before and didn't have much interest in the sport. They called me after the game and started ranting about how awesome it was. I wish I could have gone with them but it sounds like they had a blast and they had a good game to see as well. They said they were definitely going to make it a regular thing to go to the games whenever they have the chance.
