On a cold November morning in October, the rink was quiet, with no fans in the building and only one game going on at the time.
A group of fans, led by a man who was sitting on a bench near the door, were doing their best to catch the game on a TV set that was streaming the game.
But as the game wore on, the crowd grew louder and louder, and they started singing and screaming as they watched the score.
“When we finally got to the second period, the noise was really loud,” said one of the players.
“The fans were screaming and crying.”
As the second and third periods rolled around, the game became even louder.
And even though it was a one-goal game, the fans were still getting louder and angrier.
When the final seconds came, the atmosphere was so intense that a coach had to come down and stop the game because the fans couldn’t hold back any more.
The fans began chanting in English, “We’re coming for you!
We’re coming to get you!”
One of the fans was hit with a water bottle, which fractured his skull and broke his nose.
He died on the ice.
But the rest of the game went on, as if nothing happened.
It was the same fans who were singing and chanting and screaming the previous night in Anaheim, when they had their first NHL game since the Ducks swept the New Jersey Devils in the Western Conference Final.
But for many of the Anaheim fans, the Anaheim game was more important than any other game they had watched in recent memory.
It’s not just the noise, but the atmosphere.
It brought tears to their eyes and filled their hearts.
“This is our hometown game, our home game,” said a young girl who was a fan for several years, as she stood in line outside the arena.
“It was a little different because of the noise.
But it was still good for us, too.”
After the game, players were allowed to sit in the arena, and a few stood outside and spoke to the fans.
They shared stories of how they became fans in their hometowns and how they now love their team, despite being born and raised in another city.
“We’ve grown to love this team,” said defenseman Anthony Beauvillier, who grew up in Orange County.
“It’s really hard for us to be a part of this team now, because we have a new coach, a new city, a brand new stadium. “
I know they still want to come out and see this game.”
“It’s really hard for us to be a part of this team now, because we have a new coach, a new city, a brand new stadium.
We’re not just going to be here for the game anymore.”
This story has been updated to clarify that Anaheim Ducks defenseman Anthony Bennett was hit in the face with a bottle during the game last night.
