Sports highlight swimming in awesomeness

The crowd sounds like it went crazy after the goal, but the TV feed doesn't come close to capturing the insanity.

I was there. I hugged another guy. It was absolute bedlam.

I figgered ol Krankor mighta been there. But I wondered if the 'bedlam' might have been scaled down due to folks already having left... but then I remembered -- it ain't Toronto. Looks like everyone was still there.

There were a handful of people who left early, but I'd say 98% of the crowd was still there. It's very rare to see people leave in a one-goal game, though the instant Bergeron gave away the puck at the blue line a lot of people started standing up and putting on their jackets.

As an aside, a study by a couple of U of A audiologists basically said that if you attended every home game at Rexall during the playoff run last year, you likely suffered short-term hearing loss and maybe even some long-term damage.

It was worth it.
