Attendance for tonight’s Anaheim Ducks-Chicago Blackhawks game hit 17, 610 fans, including standing room.

That makes it the largest crowd in Ducks franchise history, according to a tweet from the team’s official Twitter account.

The Ducks were hosting the Blackhawks in a battle of the two best teams in the Western Conference.

The Blackhawks lead the conference with a 24-2-3 record. The Ducks came into the game five points back, with a 21-3-4 record.

It’s interesting the Ducks would hit that attendance mark in the regular season, considering they clinched the 2007 Stanley Cup on home ice.

    Their arena is constantly being renovated so it’s possible the capacity is just higher than it was in 2007.
