The organization in florida has announced a host of 9472 audience for this duel won at the count of 3 to 0 Stars. The many empty seats in the building have attracted the attention of some on social networks, because the images showing the bleachers thinning were present on Twitter and other.

Author of his second clean sheet of the season, Khudobin seemed to be in the country of knowledge, according to his words. Earlier in his career, he played in 70 games with the Hurricanes, another organisation who are experiencing difficulties in attracting supporters.

“When I played in Carolina, we had crowds similar to this one during half of the year, he mentioned to the media. When you’re used to evolve inside of a arena filled and you arrive in a building, as little busy, you feel like you are in a preparatory part. But at the same time, you understand that this is not the case. You need to be prepared in the same manner as for a meeting normal.”
