Greetings from downtown Mankato!
20 minutes until the puck drops. Decent student turnout so far, but the rest of the arena is empty. Geez.
I could blame the MSU marketing staff and ticket sellers for what I'm seeing so far, but there are a lot of empty season-ticket seats, too. What's the answer, people?
MSU is going to have to get creative to get people in the building and see the product.
Listed below the live chat, Colin.
Joe, agreed about the matchup. Respectable national college hockey people were talking about this weekend's series.
BG starters: Burke, Perrier, Walker, Berkle, Wojtala, Pohlkamp
MSU starters: Williams, Stern, Palmquist, Blueger, Margonari, McInnis
Rod ... yep, I'll be at Mariucci. Not going to Bowling Green a week later though.
Colin ... beginning of the season I picked MSU and Ferris as top two. Too soon to tell, though, but Bowling Green has been good.
Probably the Blueger-McInnis-Margonari group.
Crowd's filling in. Still not great but better than it looked 20 minutes ago.
Penalty coming on Bowling Green.
Leitner had a chance on the delay
Mavericks get a great chance right off the bat on the PP.
Power play is buzzing. Gotta get one early. Don't want what happened last week at Bemidji to happen again.
Wow. What a goal by Teddy Blueger. Beat a D and went backhand shelf. Yikes!
Margonari and Williams with assists.
That goal, Rod, should have been worth the price of admission
Bowling Green answers. Brent Tate spins around, shoots through traffic and goes 5-hole
Media timeout. Shots are 6-3.
MSU penalty coming. Interference on LaFontaine
Falcons' PP has been pretty good this season
He says he's 100%, feels better than last year.
Oh, looks like an MSU penalty. Too many men?
