I know that's harsh, but I hate it when people leave early.


Don't see why anyone cares what other people do.

People pay their money they can leave whenever they want.


I could say it in Chinese if you wish. I just like an arena full of fans.

I guarantee you that if this was a playoff game and it was 1-1 people would be fired up over others leaving early. I honestly think it makes our fan base look bad every now and then.


But nobody would leave a 1-1 playoff game. This is a 6-3 game in November. A bit different.


People do leave in 1-1 playoff games. It happens all of the time. Maybe not as dramatic as was seen tonight, but it happens more in Pittsburgh than in other major hockey markets I would say.

Proof that it happens in pittsburgh more?

One time I left my tickets at home and showed up in the second period of a playoff game.

I don't think so. Looking quickly, the only two times they've given up more than 3 were the 4-3 loss to Toronto and 5-3 loss to Carolina - BJ was in net for both.

I...just...think it does? I don't have a statistical analysis on the matter laying next to me.

Just an opinion, bud.

Of course it happens in other markets... it's just tough to tell in markets like Dallas where they drawn 6000 fans to some of their games this year.

Yeah, the "woooos" were a DIRECT reason for some people around me leaving with around 5 minutes to go with the game in hand. It's so ******* annoying, it was actually torture staying to the end of the game and not leaving early.

I hope every game I go to for the rest of the year the Pens trail the whole time then tie it up and win in OT so I don't have to hear that crap.

With about 5 minutes left at the game tonight, I turned to my brother and said: "The posters on LPG are going to be having a fit right now. Half of the crowd just left, and the ones who are left are all yelling 'woo.'" I get home and open the game thread, and--boom--confirmation.

there are a bunch of people that leave with 5 minutes or so left and stand in the concourse to watch. i started watching specific people to see what they did and noticed this was the case the majority of the time.

Though I wasn't able to stay up for this one, it's heartening that the Pens could come from behind in the 3rd like this and almost pull it off against Carolina, it sounds like their killer instinct is on its way back. I don't recall the Pens doing this hardly at all for a while there, it's nice to have some more hope going into the 3rd once again!

Asham is Awesum. That is all.

That "hardly at all" was known as the entire 2010-2011 season. So, yeah, it's nice to see again. :fist:

when did we trade Sid to the AVS? Duchene's goal was one of the prettiest I've seen since circa 2010 Sid! Love Brooks' quote in the PG. He said to Duchene, thanks for getting me on all the highlights this year.
It was great to see TK in the line-up! Also saw the 3rd best~ 2nd line, some line, with cooke/jordan/TK
score a goal.
Last night, light bulb on; I see that steve sullivan gets into the zone easy; then he dishes and distributes with ease
Pens; lucky ... or just that darn good with the comeback?

in the 1st I thought the AVS guy knocked Brooks out...

dear varlomov; once a cap, always a cap.
