When they scored. But they were average during the game. I always feel that Habs fans at the Bell's have a "show me" attitude toward the team. "Show me some effort and i'll cheer for you". While in some buildings the crowd creates the ambiance by themselves. Like we rarely hear a big cheer when the Habs have killed a penatly. It's like business as usual for them. While in other places you hear a good cheer of appreciation from the fans.
Every stadium is loud. How will you actually know unless you've been there? You don't and you sure as hell can't gauge it by what you "hear" on TV.
Ever notice flipping through NHL Center Ice that the feeds are always different? Some drown out crowd noise while others don't. You could be sitting at home watching the Predators playing the Sharks in SJ on FSN and it would sound like a golf match.
canucks fans are loud until anything goes wrong. Playoff games all start off really loud. The second the pressure gets turned on the canucks the air is sucked out of the building. everyone following the game nervously.
Doesnt Detroit have a hard time selling out games still?
As for Chicago, its become nothing but Wrigley Field for hockey considering many there are just there to say they went instead of actually being die hard fans. You have the die hards, dont get me wrong, but once the opposing team goes up two goals that place becomes quiet and the beer vendors get a work load.
