Decibel level in the Garden last night

Did anybody hear Tim Thomas, in his postgame press conference, say something about the big screen showing a stat saying the decibel level in the Garden was the highest ever recorded for a hockey game? Anyone know if there's any truth to this? I'm sure it's not a stat that's been kept for a long time, but it still would be pretty cool to know.

It was the highest level recorded in this series. Not in the history of the playoffs.

The garden set a record for the series during game 3 with 118 decibels, and beat that during game 4 with 119 decibels during Peverley's and Ryder's goals.

Ohhhh OK, just for the series. Still pretty cool though. From a TV watching perspective, I don't remember the Garden ever being louder.

Loudest spike in Vancouver was 117 db, Game 3 in Boston hit 118 db twice, and Game 4 hit 119 db twice

Last night was LOUD but I honestly think that Game 7 of the Tampa series was the loudest it's ever been in there. It was nuts even up top. My dad and brother were in my seats and both said their ears were ringing for a few days after.

Nucks fans won't cheer loudly if we win, but if we win 5 and THEN win game 6 you are right.

Cannot say I have EVER had that much fun at a game. I stand by what I said to Nucks fans in a previous thread...Bostonians are not nice to fans of the other team, Canadians, and even the Canadian PM. I took offense to some of the comments made about Canada and I was rooting for the B's. Boston really is a sports town all to its own. Never change!

And for those who don't know....the Nucks fans (likely close to 1,000 people) didn't leave Canal street because they were safe sticking together in numbers. I do feel sorry for the poor souls who decided to venture away from the pack. More than a few, including a woman, felt the Boston wrath.

I'm impressed that there haven't been any USA chants. Maybe these people are finally learning that Tim Thomas is the only US born player on the entire starting roster.

I'll be impressed when the Star Spangled Banner is sung in Vancouver in over 1 1/2 minutes.

I thought game 7 against Tampa was the loudest I ever heard it. I also drank more that day and was having a heart attack so maybe it seemed louder than it really was.

Someone posted this on the Blackhawks website. I think it would make the Cannucks fall apart:

Good news--I sent an email suggestion on the Bruins website suggesting that in game 6 they play Chelsea Dagger (either for the BOS goals or in pregame or something). I got this response:

"Thank you for contacting the Boston Bruins. I will certainly pass your email along to the necessary departments. Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate your support from Chicago! Go Bruins"

Man I hope they do this, it would be so hilarious!!!

Game 7 of the Celtics/Cavs series in '08 was the loudest I had ever heard the Garden until Game 7 of the Tampa series. That game was absolute bone-rattling insanity.

I said in an earlier post that Rogers Arena is the loudest place I've ever seen a hockey game (I've been to 8 different NHL arenas)- until these Finals.
I can't be at either place in person, but noticed that Vancouver was eerily dead silent for most of Game 1, and the Garden has been rocking. If it's possible to tell from tv. But it has seemed a lot louder in Boston.
I believe that 118db reading. Imagine Game 6 and the Bruins bring home Stanley- might have to get a new meter then (hope, pray, wish with all my might).

I've been thinking of suggesting this for the whole series, but I don't think the team does it. The backfire risk you know -- after all, the Nucks did, ultimately, beat the Hawks.

Now on the other hand, if we do finish them in game 6, just to get ahead of myself for a second, burying a "dagger" after the siren sounds would be sweet, sweet schadenfreude.

And there is nothing -- NOTHING -- stopping the fans from singing the refrain on their own.

I'm not a fan of the chant either, but it's got nothing to do with the players...it's a chant based on team location.
