    One game weekends the next two, and I certainly expect Napier to get the start in goal both weekends.

      A snow forecast shouldn't stop a Minnesotan. I'm disappointed. <2,000 fans for a 'playoff' game is pathetic. I went to a regular season women's gymnastics meet on Saturday (that I knew Michigan would likely, and did, lose) and there were 6,800 fans there.

        It wasn't the snow, it was the freezing rain underneath the new snow. That will keep people away because *other* drivers are idiots.

          This. Also, don't know about other counties, but Olmstead County (about an hour or so south of the Twin Cities metro) announced they were only sanding/salting the most key areas, because their supply was running that low...

            And then as I was driving east on 394 on my way to the women's game there was a MNDOT truck spewing out salt onto a perfectly dry road. Pretty sure the driver was getting paid overtime to accomplish nothing...

              MnDOT started pre-salting roads in anticipation of the bad weather because they found that accidents/1000 cars are lowered.

                Minnesota people don't know how to deal with real snow. Here in western Montana there's 5-6 feet of it surrounding the cabin and we're not even at the higher elevations!

                  And you're not driving around with a hundred other cars in your immediate vicinity. What does all this have to do with anything other than trying to whip it out hoping to hit 3cm on the ruler?

                    No kidding. I've had zero issues this winter with my RWD sports car. I'm not worried about me, I'm worried about the others.

                      At least 2000 people braved your roads BOTH nights to make the game.
                      If people can't drive properly in northern climes they should move to Florida.

                        They can't drive properly there, either.

                          I'm not trying to pick on St.Clown but two months ago I drove back in the middle of January from Idaho to Columbus so I don't want to hear someone complaining the weather keeps them from their hockey game when I drove through 2000 miles of it!

                            Again, oftentimes it's not the drivers themselves. It's the other idiots on the road. The ones that drive the bruh-trucks that think 4WD gives them a pass on ice, etc. Just this morning, I witnessed someone flooring it to get out of their parking spot. Well, if you know anything about anything, that doesn't work. It makes it worse.

                              So, why didn't you just drive over to Minnesota to see your ugly helmets lose hockey, too?

                                So does this mean people in Minnesota don't drive to work in bad weather like the rest of us? If you do then why not a hockey game?
