According to lifelong New Jersey Devils fan and fellow live-blogger Steve Lepore, this is the loudest he's ever heard the Prudential Center. That makes sense, of course, since it's also the building's first Stanley Cup finals game, but it's really impressive.
Fans in the upper reaches of the building -- the ones essentially touching the ceiling -- were given red glow sticks, creating a look that makes it seem like there's a fire burning. It's a cool idea and it absolutely works.
The rest of the crowd is equally as impressive. The red jerseys (on most) mixed with the white rally towels make for a very cool look, and of course, the building is just plain loud. See for yourself with a quick video shot from our vantage point inside the building:
