Best hockey this city has seen in 2 years has been under its nose. And even before the OKs developed into a winner, their effort and commitment far exceeded that of the Oilers. Hugely under-appreciated.
At minimum, it should be a loud crowd if not a sold out one. I learned tonight while watching the Shaw broadcast that Portland closes its upper seats off and tops the crowd at 11K. But it's bedlam.
Even if it's not sold out, the crowd should be crazy. The boys will need the support.
I will be highly disappointed if it is not a full house and loud as hec. These boys deserve it!
Don't bet on 16 000. IMHO 10 500 is a realistic expectation.
What an awesome hockey game. One of the best I have watched in my life. LB was a rock and St Croix was unbelievable. Just an outstanding game from both teams and I am super glad that we get to watch another one.
