The average attendance through this season's first 14 home games is 29,859, a decline of a third from two years ago. Only 25,275 fans were in the stands for Monday night's loss against Toronto, the eighth game this year in which fewer than 30,000 customers showed up. In 2012, attendance did not fall below 40,000 at any home game.
