Nothing beats the atmosphere of an NHL playoff game in person.

My ears are still buzzing from 2004.

Ill second that


Game 3 of the 2010 Avs/Sharks series was spectacular.....


but the difference we see in the videos is a mix of editor bias, different cultures surrounding professional sports between Europe and North America, and probably another reason that I cant think of because im up way too early

What do we see in the playoffs though? People wearing colors and making noise. Credit to us for that. But do we jump? Sing together? Create large mosaics . Wave flags. Light flares? The stuff u see from Europe is regular season and playoffs. There work doesn't start in the playoffs it starts from week 1

I know most fans come to stadiums to enjoy the game on the ice or field or court. But the fans barely contribute here.. Over there it's like a duty to intimidate the other team. There contribution is just as important as the players. Like one big machine . One part doesn't function without the other. If American sports were like this home advantage would mean a million times more.

I agree with Avsfreak. It's a cultural difference. I love London based football (soccer) team Arsenal FC and I love the atmosphere at their matches. Everyone's singing, cheering and usually in good spirits. While that's typical for a soccer match, it is a very European tradition. That's why I'm fine with the atmosphere we have here at our sports games because it's our own way to rooting for our teams. It's definitely a cultural thing, but I certainly respect the traditions of both sides. That being said, I'd sure love if we could learn a thing or two from our northern neighbors and sing the national anthem in unison like they do in Edmonton and Vancouver for example. But that's another topic.

I actually wouldn't like constant yelling, chanting, standing, signs, etc, etc, etc. I'm trying to watch the game.

And I like that our traditions here are different; that they vary team to team.

For your National Anthem statement, theres are American soccer Supporters of the Portland Timbers of the MLS! THEY SING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM IN COMPLETE UNISON, NO TUNE, NO SINGER, BEST THING YOU WILL HEAR! PRESS THIS LINK! and theres over 30,00 people in this stadium.

Would enjoy that but the City of Detroit's brutal Monarchy dictatorship of Mayor Bing would never let me do that at the Joe Parking lot.

I'm with Mish, I love standing up for a good cheer when a goal is scored etc. But there is something to be said about being able to sit down and enjoying the game.

A lot of times a quiet crowd is a focused crowd...who explode just as loud if not louder when given a reason to.

That's just it. Sometimes I think the Europe way of doing things makes things more about the crowd/party then it is about the game they are supposed to be watching. I know it's not, those people take their games as serious as we do, but I prefer the North American style myself.

I mean, it's not like I don't like the occasional rallying chant.. like last night when it Lightning finally woke up in the third, scored a couple, and the crowd started the 'Let's go Lightning' chant to show support/backing/COME THE EFF ON AND SCORE A THIRD GOAL.

It wouldn't mean as much to do something like that if there was constant blaring sound. It wouldn't mean anything, actually, because they wouldn't know the difference.

Replace "Europe" with "Wrigley Field" (as in the Chicago Cubs) and this statement is dead on!
