Make Some Noise Vancouver

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

When the game started, they made more noise than the Canucks’ faithful — and this did not escape the notice of at least one of the Canucks’ players.

“I love the Jets and their fan-base,” Kevin Bieksa said before last night’s meeting with the Phoenix Coyotes.

“To see them come in here and out-cheer our fans is great from their perspective. I’m really happy for them.”

Bieksa continued, choosing his words carefully, but not, as it turned out, too carefully.

“But from our perspective, it’s a little sad. At times, we get that on the road when we’re in Phoenix or L.A., it seems we have a louder crowd than the home team, and I know it gets them down. When you’re at home and the road team has a louder crowd, it’s a little embarrassing. I don’t think we want that to happen to us.”
