NHL Attendance Dwindling For Some Teams

from the Toronto Sun,
Full houses in Toronto, Minnesota and Philadelphia (the Flyers attendance has gone up) have contrasted with some half-empty buildings. As the Nashville Predators' winning streak goes up, their crowds have dipped from 17,000 to 16,279, to two games of just above 12,000. The New York Islanders have begin to lag, unable to sell out against the New York Rangers, their traditional rival, while crowds in Chicago and Raleigh, N.C., have looked sparse as well. The Colorado Avalanche continue to announce a full house, thus preserving an 18,007-seat sellout streak that dates back to November 1995. But the club is now hawking season and single-game tickets on TV and on the Internet, which could spell the end of their sellout run fairly soon.
