    LOL

    And that particular game went to double overtime. With that rivalry, that passionate crowd, that intensity, it was one of the most awesome games to witness in person. And it started out with Norwich scoring 15 seconds into the game. Imagine the crowd noise at that point!

    The attendance was speculative in those days.

    Nothing against the home team or it's facility - never been so can’t comment one way or another - but when 3 of 4 teams, their staff and fans will have to travel on short notice, these are legitimate questions IMHO.

    Perhaps there are lessons learned from this week that can be considered for when the “east preferred” Championship has its turn.
    I didn't attend last weekend but in the past have been to both.... Middlebury hosted at home, Nowrich hosted at home, Lake Placid numerous times including that 2OT thriller and a couple different times to Minneapolis. While when Nowrich hosted and won the national championship was very special, I don't think it fair at all. I prefer neutral sites. Minneapolis was very good in that it is a major city and lots of things to do and the University of Minnesota Women's arena was a good size and conveniently located .... Lake Placid is fun with lots to do but is hard to get to unless you are within a reasonable driving distance.

    I'd like to see a good sized city... perhaps alternate between Albany. Manchester NH and Minneapolis or something like that.

    It was packed. It was passionate. Who cares what the actual number was?

    In the"vacated" year the attendance number used in Old Stafford was 4000. There were more than that in the arena for that final game.

    The fire marshall did. Anytime you saw 2200 listed, you could be sure it was far more. For the 2003 final, the estimate was AT LEAST 3,000.

    True fact. The facility was rated by the fire department as having a capacity of 3,000, but nobody was counting tickets, except a couple of people with mechanical "clickers." The truth of the attendance numbers will never be known. Since the advent of University Tickets, I'm sure the attendance figures are more accurate.
