I was very surprised. It looked and sounded like there was a good amount of MON fans there. It was not overwhelming…but I saw a few sections and heard it clearly on TV.
I thought road fans were pretty much obsolete at PIT with constant sellouts…is this the case…and if not…how did so many MON fans get seats?
Is that what's like when Philly is visiting?
Not sure how many games you've seen at the arena, but Habs and Leafs fans always travel well and it's not just here. The Leafs usually seem to get about 2000 or so fans into the arena every time they play here, and the few times I've seen the Habs play, they bring about the same. Most of them all come as part of these travelling fan clubs or caravans. Leafs fans I've talked to say that they buy many of their tickets for these games as soon as tickets go on sale and they get them in groups. I'm assuming Habs fans do the same.
Buffalo fans travel well to Pittsburgh, as do Red Wings fans (and the ones I've encountered have been among the most knowledgable and gracious visiting fans). I don't see as many Rangers and Flyers fans now as I have in past years.
