Depends on how you measure it. By active players? Sure, football/soccer will win. If you look at attendance it's a different story, more people go to watch hockey games - not in average, but combined over a full season. That's quite remarkable if you consider sizes of arenas (sure there are also more hockey games in a season compared to football/soccer). Anyways, back to the game: great effort, unfortunate ending. The two penalties were entertaining, however I wish we could have had a power play.
