How loud is Game 4? Decibel Meter will tell you @NHL
BOSTON -- The Bruins jumped back into this 2011 Stanley Cup Final with a rousing 8-1 victory in Game 3. The local fans? Just as roused, notching the loudest goal celebration of the series so far on the Decibel Meter when Brad Marchand scored a beauty while his team was shorthanded. 

The question of Game 4? Can Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo bounce back from an all-out drubbing? No doubt Boston fans won't let Luongo forget it.
