How loud is it? Game 2 decibel readings

What's all the noise about?

Simple, the Vancouver Canucks are looking to get the jump on the franchise's first Stanley Cup by winning the opening two games of this Final. But the Bruins are looking to make a little history of their own as they attempt to secure the franchise's sixth Stanley Cup.

Put your ear to the NHL.com Decibel Meter for these sound booms during tonight's game:

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
