Is 18 600 people a sellout crowd?

I was at this game on Friday, and they said something about there being 18 600 people in attendance.

I know Buffalo was getting numbers like 13 000 people for some of their other games, so I must have been lucky to see the arena full

Was this game considered sold out, because I saw empty seats but surely HSBC couldn't hold much more than this....anyways awesome seeing so many Habs fans in Buffalo, the were almost as loud the Sabres fans,


and i wonder what it will be like when its LEAFS vs BUFFALO...

The arena's capacity used to be 18,595 if I remember correctly, it may hold more now, I'm certainly not the expert.

So you had a good time, it sounds like?

the game was too confusing on the radio side... you couldn't tell who was getting penalties judging from the crowd reaction.

It doesn't help that the radio guys for montreal's english feed are inept

Did Buffalo sell out their home opener this season, or when Pittsburgh played them that one game?

Nope and Nope. It was considerd a sellout, but theres no way all the seats were filled, there were tons of empty seats. Still a decent crowd.

I Experienced the same thing on our radio sidde (RJ and JL).
I wasn't paying attention and I thought that 3rd goal by the Habs was actually scored by the Sabres for a few seconds.
