This being said, let’s take a look at the top ten arena atmospheres in the NHL.
Fans of the Philadelphia Flyers are known to be among the most passionate in the NHL.
Inside the dome you’ll find the “C” of Red, games always sold out as virtually every fan in attendance is donning red, most all of them in Flames jerseys.
Flames that shoot out and flashing red lights throughout the arena add to the scary ambiance.
The Hall of Famer left his mark on the NHL as a tough guy with what is now known as the "Gordie Howe hat trick"—which is when a player has a goal, an assist, and a fight in the same game.
Throughout history, the NHL and its teams have made their homes in arenas across North America.
Although he wasn't much of a fighter—although he could dish out a hard hit when he needed to—Howe made his presence known on the ice with a combination of physical strength, scoring ability, true grit, and supreme durability.
Born in a farmhouse in Saskatchewan, Howe went on to play until he was 51 years old, the bulk of that coming with the Detroit Red Wings.
These impressive numbers mean the Wild sell more tickets than the Xcel Energy Arena’s capacity on a nightly basis.
Each barn is unique in its own way, while the fans that fill the seats bring seemingly endless levels of enthusiasm and passion.
In certain scenarios, a given arena and the fans that fill it may be so passionate that the emphatic, sometimes raucous noise they create has the ability to directly influence the outcome of a game.
Although acoustic paneling keeps the Saddledome quieter than some other arenas, there is constant sound coming from the C of Red, and despite the paneling, it can still get quite noisy at times.
Year after year the Flames have one of the best home ice records, and the Saddledome is a big reason why.
