The Florida Panthers might have needed a little more encouragement from their fans last night as they fell 3-0 at the hands of the Dallas Stars. However, it seems like there wasn't enough of them in the BB&T Center for them to be heard as the game only drew 9,472 fans in Florida.
Filling in for injured starter Ben Bishop for the third straight game was back-up goaltender Anton Khudobin, who had the perfect analysis of the home crowd in Florida. But it's quite the insult.
When asked after the game about playing in front of a small crowd, this is what Khudobin had to say:
"When you playing all the time with a full building, comes to a building like this, it feel kind of like an exhibition game, but at the same time, you understand that it’s not."
Pictures of the record low attendance were going viral on social media last night. It hurts just to see them, so we can't imagine how it feels to be playing in front of so little fans...
According to the information provided by ESPN, the Panthers rank 30th in the league with an average of 13,167 fans per game. On the road, the Stars are drawing the third least amount of fans were game with 16,717.
