Acc

I just love it when the ACC is as loud as it was vs the Sabres. I really think the fans helped us a lot to get those 2pts. It sucks because most of the time the building is very quiet. What happened to the days when the ACC was rocking all the time? I seriously believe the reason we've been struggling on home ice is because the fans show no support. Let's try and fix this?

well when we are losing and allowing multiple PP goals against there is no reason to be cheering

yesterday was loud because we actually WON a game

Fully agree. That's when home ice advantage pays dividends. Hope it continues to be that loud. Our boys need to know we're there!!

The fans are loud when they play good.

They played good. Our fans are VERY bipolar. If we're losing it's like "**** everything, fire everybody, this team sucks."

When they put in a good effort and keep it close the fans are very loud and supportive. Imagine the playoffs.

Brings a tear to my eye at 2:06.

The sound quality doesn't do the loud ACC crowd justice.

When you're out of the playoffs as long as we have and have bad games at home, it's hard to cheer.

Things are now looking up, this team can beat good teams now and we're seeing the support from the crowd. If the Leafs make the playoffs they might have transform Rogers Center into a rink to fit everyone that wants a ticket

When we're winning, it's pretty hard to beat the atmosphere in TO. Debatable with Montreal obviously (as is everything), but it's special.

Hahaha so funny how 0:49 wasn't a penalty. Couldn't get more blatant. Refs probably just were letting them play but come on.

And wow, ya that was great. Loved the crowd, loved every player on that ice too. Miss that!

I dunno, i'm happy the Refs put up away their whistles on that play. I hate seeing PP's in playoff OT games.

It's just one of those unwritten rules: Let the player decide the game, not the referee.

The playoff atmosphere of the ACC is always out of this world.

Yesterday, was nice though. The crowd was really into it.

they have to do a better job of keeping the Platinum's IN their seats, especially for the start of the period.

hire some more chanters in the stands

Lower the ticket prices so more people can go to games. If I could afford a ticket, I'd yell like an *******.

Oh yeah, totally makes sense ... Companies love to make less money and anger their shareholders.

This!

Honestly, I'm not impressed.. The ACC needs to be less accommodating to opposing teams entering our barn. I know some of the old-timers won't agree with me but I'd like to see a soccer-like atmosphere at the ACC with foks banging on drums, some war music (not top-40 BS), a ****** opposing team's dressing room, and some rabid fans in the stands

I could carry a Ford F-150, on my back, up a hill, after watching that

Old rules? They never called hooking & holding back then.

I love the paddle down on every shot by Cujo... my has the NHL changed.

I still felt as if the crowd mics were really low last night... the crowd was loud but it didn't translate well to the TV (or at least my broadcast).

My solution to warming the ACC up is to put a winning product on the ice.... pretty simple.

The players are deciding the game, by taking bad penalties. Would you say the same thing if they missed an obvious call and the team went the other way and scored?

But I do agree, it should only be called if it's blatant and has a huge impact on the outcome of a play.

I loved how the refs called the playoff games back then. You'd have to practically decapitate a guy before they'd call a penalty and the excitement factor was 100% better than today. The refs should shove those whistles up their a$$es once the playoffs start.
