    Good choice on the ice fishing at Devils Lake. Great spot.

    There are a couple of small breweries in the area that aren't bad. One of my favorites is Drekker Brewing in Fargo. Great facility and a lot of beers that I like. The only problem is if you're staying in Grand Forks you have an hours drive back from the brewery.

    Probably not going to be a lot else going on. It is January, and it is Grand Forks.

    Enjoy your trip!

      Bring layers of clothes to adjust to the weather. Most of the fun bars are downtown, by the river & across to the other river bank in East Grand Forks. If you have time you can go to a Fargo Force game in Fargo if they are playing there that weekend.

          Nice sweep over an undermanned CC team. I think they will be a pretty good team when the freshmen (12) get more experience. UND has a good chance to solidify their chance of taking the Penrose with another sweep at Omaha next weekend. Omaha is not going to be an easy out - they are playing good hockey. A split would not be all bad.

            Penne Rosa! Fourth conference championship in the eight year history of the league. Now about that elusive playoff championship.....

              They are playing really good hockey right now. I hope they can continue for another month-and-a-half, but it has been very enjoyable to watch this team of late. Also, big congratulations to Brad Berry. The team this weekend was laser focused on the task at hand, and they absolutely destroyed a good Omaha squad. We will see how well they can keep focus these next two games.

              As for the NCHC Tournament title, while obviously the bigger prize lies a bit beyond that, the setup this year is about as tailormade as it could get for UND to win. They've won 13 in a row at home (and 27 of their last 28). Here's to hoping they can capture that first NCHC Tournament title, and then complete the trifecta for the first time since 1997!

                I thought the Saturday game was their most complete game of the season. They will be very hard to beat if they can continue at that level. BTW, what is the CC rule?

                  The CC Rule was that any regular season champion from the big 4 conferences at the time (CCHA, ECAC, Hockey East, and WCHA) would receive an auto bid into the NCAA tournament. I forget exactly what year it was (maybe 1994?), but CC won the MacNaughton, but lost in the first round of the WCHA tournament. They weren't selected for the NCAAs, and the CC Rule was born.

                      Supposedly just one each team. Bast for UND.

                        Missed Sat's game, and couldn't find coverage of that last minute (not on CHN, USCHO, GFHerald, etc). Followed CHN Live Box, and things just paused for 20 min at 00:58 - then listed about 18 penalties and misconducts. Then the game ended. Not hard to guess the big picture, but where can I read about what happened?
