How loud is it? Game 2 decibel readings

NHL.com @NHL
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:
