I think its because there are so many Hawks fans who have adopted the Coyotes as their second team. And while this is for the playoffs, most Hawk fans are educated enough to know this means more for the Coyotes, both on and off the ice.

I dont think that counts because someone is paying for them. When the Coyotes say they give out free tickets themselves, I just want to get on that list for one year. And I loved them promoting next year's season tickets right after the win and when the Coyotes took the lead in the second period...SMART!!!

Yeah, true. I just hope next year I'm one of the people paying from my own checkbook for season tickets.

75-80% would have been VERY generous. I did a quick look-see at my section and out of about 340 seats, I saw maybe 10 Hawks jerseys.

Looking around at the other sections, it was almost entirely white with tiny little groups of red clustered together. I think if you said 10% Hawks fans, that would be generous.

It's cracking me up to read some of the tweets, esp. on the #nordiques hash tag this morning. So far I've seen:
we didn't sell out the game (we did)
people didn't stay for the OT (they did - I saw VERY few people leave and not come back after the 3rd period)
we gave away all of the seats (doubtful)
"most" fans were at their first hockey game ever (how would you even know that? what a stupid thing to say)
the coyotes fans were quiet (yeah, if you had your tv on mute they probably were)
the "let's go blackhawks" cheer was louder than the one for the coyotes (really? I couldn't hear the blackhawks cheering over the "let's go coyotes" chants. Maybe their English isn't so good?)

I can understand reading the tea leaves on the ownership situation and convincing yourself that the team is going to QC, or that they are staying in Phoenix. Too much speculation on that end. But if anyone is actually WATCHING footage fo the game, or viewing photos from the game, so many of these stupid things are flat-out lies.

If you are going to lie, why not go all-out and make it a good one. Something like "Hawks beat Coyotes 6-1 in a shoot-out at first round playoff game."

For what it's worth, from watching the broadcast feed (which shows mostly only the lower bowl), I'd guess the crowd composition was about 88-92% white and 8-12% red.

Nail biting game. Had some frustrations at the bar early on when we couldn't find the game on their Direct Tv. Finally, some other fans were there and helped out, put it on just seconds before the first drop of the puck.

Really thought Boedker looked good. Of course he can improve, but he was all over the ice when his line was out there. Some how Pyatt has managed to come through with some clutch goals since he came back. Then you got OEL who just seemed to find that extra gear once OT hit. Kid's such a great skater.

Sucks about Vrbata, can't really dwell on his absence much. Only good thing about this is Chipchura will most likely be seeing some time. Won't really help our offensive talent but will add another layer of physicality.

Hail Mike Smith!

I think this is an example of his ability to play what Tip always refers to as a heavy game. It's not that he's overly physical or mean but he's big and simply put he's not easy to push around. Things tighten up in the playoffs and smaller players can get smothered a bit but it doesn't really effect Pyatt much because of his size.

Yep, it was $80. A little pricey for a screen printed jersey but they did look pretty cool! If they would've had my size I was seriously considering it.

The strategy from Chicago has to be to hit OEL and Yandle going forward. Expect that.

If Hawks fans think they can pressure Smith into not playing the puck anymore then they are misleading themselves. He's done this all year and while he's been burnt at times the team and the defense encourages that behavior. Maloney should be campaigning for the removal of the trapezoid.

Gordon's play is rubbing of on the rest of the team. I thought Korpi was hitting everything he could (think he is going Canadian & getting away from the European style play). Refs let them play last nite, the other SCPO games seemed to have too many penalties. Go Yotes & the Czech Mafia

Wasn't at the game, but Crawford chant was coming through my television in the 3rd period. Crowd needs to get it going after he lets one in, not a period later! Either way, lots of good comments on the crowd. We couldn't hear the goal horn on the tv when we scored, so you guys were obviously loud!

So pissed my dvr decided it didnt want to record longer than the two and a half hours of regulation. It recorded the three hours extra on all the other games so far but decides to flake out on the most important game. So the last thing I got to watch was the seabrook goal with 14 seconds left. Good thing I had a fridge full of beer.

Still have the horn. I think Vermette's shot was so insanely hard that the horn decided not to operate, lol.

All kidding aside, the horn must have failed in some way, b/c after Vermette's goal, something happened to it, as the sound was barely audible in the crowd....

The crowd noise was absolutely off the scale. I think that it was drowned out. Initially I didn't even think that they used the horn but people have heard it (barely) over the crowd noise on their DVRs.

90/10 is about right for the split of fans.

One of the funniest things that I heard was a Hawks fan who was (seriously) saying that in the playoffs, the max you can go is 2 OTs, then the SO occurs. And we are the uneducated fans? (sarcasm)

I assume they played it but I couldn't even hear the normal goal music.

Me either. They played it, but you couldn't really hear it. Especially after the GWG.

Almost decked the Hawk fan behind me. He had the most annoying voice ever (Chicago accent, and high pitched). He was the biggest homer ever (Every time the Coyotes hit a hawk it was a penelty, or a trip) and kept talking crap about the Coyotes fan base. I controlled myself well, but tomorrow I'm bring a giant sign to piss him off.

And yes, they did play the goal horn.
