I've never heard the Joe as loud as it was tonight, and I only saw it on TV. Can those of you who were there weigh in?

Oh, and I envy you for being at this, one of the most inspired wins by the Wings in the past decade.

I have been to a lot of Red Wings games with huge noisy crowds, but tonights Game 6 was by far the loudest I've experienced.

I've been to a few games during the 08 and 09 finals, including the game linked below, the San Jose game 4 last year (Mule Masacre), as well as the Leafs game this year when a fight broke out in the stands. But tonight's out did them all in terms of pure volume.

The fans proudly sang out the national anthem, did not quite a decible until the second period (when everyone was refilling their beer), and shook the roof in the third period (when everyone was good and drunk)

Tonight was one of the best experiences I've had at the Joe.

What was the best crowd you have been apart of at the Joe?

Singing Fans



By the way, was anyone else sitting upper deck behind the Niemi in the 3rd? And did you hear that chick who went absolutely bat-s*** crazy? I sit on the corner side of the rink 3 sections over and could here her clearly screaming. She got us all fired up, but damn was she loud! :yowza:

Was at game 4 too. And before tonights game, I thought that was the best and loudest game I had been to. But tonights game beat that. That was awesome. The corporate duds have been replaced.

Absolutely incredible night at the Joe.

Awesome to read that the Joe was a rockin' and a jolly time was had by all. Watched the game at work online. Looked like it was a blast. Good on all the fans at the Joe tonight for representing so well in a huge game. I've been to some big games there myself back in the 90's. I know what a special place that can be.

Man do I miss the Joe. It's an old barn but it's good old barn.

I wasn't there, but the restaurant I was at had to turn on music after the first five minutes because the noise coming through was just a constant fuzz without being able to actually hear anything.

I watched on TSN and it didn't seem so loud...Detroit's crowd used to stand up with the Montreals and Vancouvers and it hasn't in a while. But I guess it seemed decent for the "new detroit crowd".

I can say... that was absolutely incredible. I'm not sure how it compares on the all-time loudness scale because I've been blessed that the last 3 playoff games I've attended were this, Game 7 of the 2009 WC Semi's (Cleary winner), and Game 5 of the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals.

I have to agree though, I'm not sure the last time I've seen a crowd and hockey team play that inspired.
Q: Of all the individual trophies you have not won, which one would you most like to win?
Datsyuk: I have so many of them that I haven't won. I think I would most like to win a trophy to the best goaltending duo.

I wish so much that I would have been able to sell that stupid guitar today. I've got student loans, hospital bills and rent to worry about but I was going to drive the 5 hours if I could have and spend whatever it took to get in.

It was awesome. Loud, loud and loud. No one sitting on their hands. Singing along with the national anthem. First time I seen that at the Joe. I thought game 4 was great. Wow, this game was so awesome. Best two games I have been to. The corporate duds are being replaced by real energy filled fans

Yup- I opted out of my health care plan only to slip on a patch of ice this winter and screwed up my knee cap. It's nights like this thought that make it all worth it.

Extremely loud but didn't reach the level of the last minutes of Game 5 in the 08 Finals (before they tied it). On par to the 5-0 win in the 09 Finals.

The tank, regardless of the fact that the JLA holds roughly 2,500 more people, is (because of design) louder at ice level. Therefore the ice level mics pick up more crowd sounds.

I was there for that game in 09. From what I remember its was loud, but it wasn't THIS loud
(even the national anthem before the game was sung out by all)



btw, I'm sorry Crymson. I didn't see your thread before I posted my very similar topic :(

Sorry I'm deaf after being at the game...can you repeat the question?

Seriously it was LOUD at the Joe. I don't think they mike the Joe the same as other arenas... Hell... Listen to the difference between fans banging on the glass here vs Vancouver and you'll understand what I'm sayin
