This made me laugh

Is this normal? AND how often do you guys get visited by the 50 or so canadian Jets fans? They were clearly very drunk but seemed to feel right at home with their chanting (For the Jets... wtf)

Overall as a midwest Ranger fan who has been displaced I've always had an interest in the Wild and they have always felt like my "home away from home" team. Good Luck with the rest of your season!
Yeah we haven't exactly had much to cheer about since our division title 3 years ago. The Wild seem to just pick 20-30 minutes of each game that they're just not going to care about, and so it's hard to get super excited when you've got that dread weighing down your gut. Honestly, I'm impressed with how much cheering there was for the goal, considering they were down 4-0 in the third when it happened.

I'd say that with the way things are going, the crowd was plenty vocal––just not supportive. We booed the team off the ice after the second (because they deserved it), we booed every time pretty boy had the puck (because he deserved it), we booed some calls that looked sketchy from our perspective (because the refs probably didn't deserve it, but we were just pissed off in general).

The Jets fans are pretty typical. I was up in Winnipeg for an AHL game about a week ago and frankly nobody seems to care about the Moose. They draw an OK crowd, but nobody even stood up for goals. It's clear that they're waiting for the real thing and they'd rather come watch a game here, which is fine by me; they're great fans and nice people.

Well that is how they got the Moose in the first place.
