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
Yep, and this has been true for the 20-odd years I've been watching them. CBC on the other hand really like to mike up the crowd.
Having said that, you can still tell on TV when the crowd is REALLY energised. 2008 game 5 is the one that sticks in my mind after Rafalski's goal.

Once again my bad for not noticing this on the forum when I started a new topic.. I think I need to get my eyes checked... Amazing atmosphere last night!

We all watched the TSN (Vs.) feed as well and it was insanely loud, hence the thread start by the OP. You must've been drunk or hard of hearing.
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 just so happened to be at both of those games. The '08 Finals in the last 10 minutes (especially immediately following Raf making it 3-2) were by far louder than the 5-0 win the following year. Both loud, but the floor shook when Raf gave Detroit the lead.
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.

Thats awesome to hear, wtf did they do on tv, turn the crowd sounds way down to favor San Jose more?
Each channel mixes it differently. Sometimes you can barely hear the crowd. On FSD you could hear the crowd, but you could tell there was sound dampening going on. But you could tell it was loud just because it was louder than other FSD games.

Has the crowd dynamic changed? Lot of college kids? Less corporates?
What is the difference, this place is nuts and it comes through on TV very very well.
One thing I must say, for all of the crap Emmerick gets for his DRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE, and other crap, he knows when to shut up and let the moment unfurl.
As soon as Helm scored he shut right up, let the crowd take over the moment.
Even the announcers were talking about the level of noise it the barn, these guys have been coming to Detroit for the post season for years now, and they understand this year at the Joe is different, this is not you Dad's Barn anymore.
That building is becoming one loud SOB!

For those who went, to the Wings Ducks Game 7: in 09, Was it comparable to that? My ears rang for a day and a half after that game.

All I know is that little turd Pierre McGuire had to scream to be heard over the Wings' fans singing Journey at the end. The atmosphere was incredible ... I have a friend who's a Blackhawks fan (Not a very good friend obviously). He went to Game 4 and couldn't believe how loud and engaged the crowd was from the opening faceoff. Game 6 seemed substantially louder.
I wish I could have been there. Ugh, might have had a heart attack tho. lol. For those who went, to the Wings Ducks Game 7: in 09, Was it comparable to that? My ears rang for a day and a half after that game.
In all honesty, mine are still ringing right now.

Agreed my friend. If this actually happens on Thursday night, we could be looking back at this win for the rest of our lives (including the hopeful Cup win also). I just had my doubts going into that arena last night and once we started playing I figured it was only a matter of time. It was the emotional roller coaster we all think it would be. Cleary's breakaway at my vantage point was never in and most thought it was at that second, I did see the puck cross the line for the Sharks unfortunately when everyone was kind of up in arms about that. I actually didn't want the night to end as weird as that may sound but on the way home realized there is still a lot of work to do. Win or lose, just amazing though. That was absolutely the very best crowd I have seen at a game in my life; this includes a '02 Cup clinching game when I was 17. My Hank jersey smells of the beer some people were tossing, I counted like 10 pi that hit the ice probably more. The Flip goal probably could have unhinged the roof itself if the banners that held them up so beautifully weren't there. I can't remember ever being so passionate and into a game in my entire 26 years on this earth. They just won't die. No other words...
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.

You know last night erased donít you? Címon. Youíve been here a while. You know the one game, of all games, played in that house, that still plagues us to this day. Last night, under those circumstances, with that effort, that absolute domination, in a game that could be looked back at as a statement for the agesÖ.with that game they paid us back for 34.7.
Thatís how electric you were last night if you were at the Joe. Thatís how starving you were to will that team to that performance. The last time I heard you like that the Cup was just down the hall. A hobbit was ready to hand it to Nick. The Joe would have exploded that night, if that game had just ended 34.7 seconds earlier.

I must admit to getting PRETTY pissed after the Cleary breakaway, because Emerick shouted SCOOOOORES, and I started cheering like a maniac, only to glance back at the TV and see they were still playing.
Turned out OK though. In a weird way, Cleary missing that breakaway just strengthened his and the team's resolve. He was a beast all game, exactly what we need out of him.
Amazing game, I could barely sleep last night.

Went to Boston and caught a Sox-Yankees game that the Sox won 6-5. The atmosphere was incredible and very loud for an open structure.
