I was at this game. If memory serves me correctly I actually bought student rush tickets. I think that was the loudest I have ever heard it there, the crowd that game was bonkers from start to finish.
Crowd was nuts that entire game. I was there as well, student rush. That was like right before my 15th birthday lol. The game wasn't even sold out though. I think it was 1000 or 1500 under capacity. Never heard the crowd louder than when Jagr scored in OT, even to this day. I was in section B2 behind Brodeur when Straka passed it to Jagr and he put that puck in. I hugged people I didn't even know that day. I still have my ticket stub from that game.
You could student rush quite a few playoff games during those years. They weren't the guaranteed sellout they are now. I went to quite a few playoff games for cheap back then. It turned me into a season ticket holder years later.
trying to track down one of the most amazing recent Mario goals I witnessed, the ill named "immaculate deflection" which tied the game in the 2001 game 6 Pens-Sabres series.... just can't find it, but man.... that was an amazing play, I believe Andrew Ference had something to do with that goal.. that man only took wrist shots
oh my god do I feel embarassed, but this is the only footage I could find of my previous post.... how bad is Old Man Cherry's recap....... Its so awful but at least some peeps will see what I was getting at
