In Part 1, I gave the stats. For Part 2…thought I’d have some fun with numbers. Team, myself, whatever I could think of related to the past season. Here we go:
5,235: The attendance figure for the first Devil home opener on October 9th.
1,323: Lowest attendance mark, on December 1st vs. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
5,944: Highest attendance mark, on February 20th vs. Adirondack.
3,114: Final average attendance.
So there you have it. I may update this entry on occasion if anything else comes to mind. Stay tuned for the 3rd and final installment of the season review…
84: Team high penalty minutes in a game, on January 21st in Hershey. If only Louis hadn’t run Sabourin…
8: Number of AHL cities I saw at least one game in this season (Albany, Adirondack, Binghamton, Syracuse, Springfield, Worcester, Wilkes-Barre, Bridgeport)
50: If I counted right, number of games I went to this year.
4: Penalty shots, 2 on each side. Michael Swift and Adam Henrique were successful, Dave Caruso stopped Nicolas Blanchard in Charlotte, and Paul Byron scored on Mike McKenna.
47: Number of players who appeared in at least one game for the Devils.
20: Number of players who appeared in at least one game for both Albany and New Jersey.
9: Number of Albany players who made their NHL debut this season.
9: Most goals given up by Albany to an opponent, to the Phantoms on April 1st.
