How loud is Game 3? Decibel Meter will tell you
BOSTON -- There is a long NHL tradition in this Original Six town. One way to tell during Game 3 is just how loud it's going to get as the Bruins look to find their home-ice equilibrium and avoid an 0-3 crater in this 2011 Stanley Cup Final.
The NHL.com Decibel Meter is in the TD Garden house after registering a high of 117 decibels in Vancouver's Rogers Arena on Alex Burrows game-winning goal 11 seconds into overtimes.
