The guy in front of me said the same thing, I just wanna make sure we're not crazy.
Seems like that happens once in a while. Every now and then they will play that instrumental that trueblue mentioned which throws everyone off.

I totally agree that MSG Network has to be muting the crowd noise to some extent. Almost from the drop of the puck last night you could hear and feel the energy of the crowd. Why MSG Network would want to suppress that, I have no clue. Doesn't even make sense.

The NBC/Versus and now NBCSN mikes make it sound so loud I wanted to buy tickets again. Shouldn't MSG Network be doing that as well?

That doesn't make it sound better - no pun intended - it makes our owner an idiot! No problem dishing out the money for FAs in either hockey or basketball but can't throw in the extra cash to amplify the sounds of the game?

This is also the same guy that has 5 teams playing for his network (Rangers, Islanders, Devils, Sabres, Knicks).

I'm not saying that's what it is... just offering a possible reason. I have no idea.

Sometimes upper managment makes decisions to cut cost in areas they feel won't be noticed, or it might have something to do with all the construction... I'm not saying any of these are correct... just possibilities.

I could see the construction maybe playing a part... NBC and their stuff comes in, is set up and then they strike it. MSG may have more permanent mics/equip... that haven't been set-up yet due to the construction.

I think it's much more likely that they just don't have as good production values/mics set up rather than some kind of conspiracy to dampen crowd noise, which wouldn't make sense.

MSG is definitely quieter during the broadcasts in general. Having listening to Tampa's home feed and 24/7 it seems that hockey noises are more pronounced. You hear the boards banging better, you hear the skating better. Maybe its just me, but I've noticed a clear difference, between MSG's feeds and other teams feeds.

I do a lot of live TV for my job...crowd noise can play havoc on the announcers mics...they keep it low for that reason.

Everyone turns down crowd noise, or else the voice of a single commentary would be lost.

I'd say it has to do a lot with where the home team broadcasters sit. I think we've come to the conclusion that MSG lower's the Devils crowd noise because Steve and Chico sit, in the lower bowl, in the club area and naturally, all noise has to be muted. Think tonights game in Chicago. You can tell how the raise and lower the volume when they score because the goal horn goes from clear to muffled and back to clear.

Having been inside an MSG Truck I can assure you they have top of the line, state of the art equipment.
