Sellout streak ends in Game 1

The crowd of 19,204 at Game 1 Thursday night was remarkable ... remarkable in that it was the first time since Dec. 10, 1996, that the Red Wings played before a non-sellout crowd. Last night's game ended the franchise's streak of 452 consecutive sellouts. And it was obvious. There were several entire rows in the upper bowl that were vacant and still had giveaway towels draped over the seats. At least the regular-season sellout streak of 396 consecutive games is intact.

That is truly a sad day. the area looked/sounded empty last night. I always give my friends from non-hockey markets sht for not supporting their teams. this was tough to see.

Maybe they're trying to support their families, instead.

Playoff tickets in Detroit aren't exactly cheap.
