    My wonderful husband was able to get a video feed for us to watch this weekend. Last night Duluth controlled the puck for much of the first 10 minutes. The cheap hit to Blankenberg that resulted in a misconduct was definitely a turning point. Michigan started to control the puck enough to get shots on goal (something they weren't doing early).

    Should be a good game this afternoon. May give us a good idea of how good this Michigan team is/can be.

    I was really impressed with Portillo yesterday.

The only thing that comes to my mind is that he might have had too much curve in the blade orhad a broken stick and did not drop it soon enough.
    Power was playing with a broken stick.

    I'm not positive about this, but I think I met his dad yesterday.

    Your best bet for radio is probably streaming. Good news this afternoon is that the game ends before sundown, at least here in Duluth.

    Our family will be in the same spot, visible above the goal on the right side of the screen.

    After Blankenburg got bashed in the head, it looks like we really picked up the game. I heard the 3rd period, and saw the highlights, but it would be interesting to hear what people who saw the whole game thought.

    And Brisson's goal made it to #4 on the ESPN top plays for yesterday.

    I wish we were going to the games this weekend. I am excited for those of you that are.

    I found this on the UMD Athletics website:

    Frequently Asked Questions:
    • Will Bulldog events at AMSOIL Arena and Romano Gymnasium require indoor face coverings this season? Yes. The health and safety of our fans and staff is our top priority. In accordance with the University of Minnesota Duluth, indoor face coverings are required at any Bulldog athletic event. At this time, face coverings are not required in outdoor settings for Bulldog athletic events.
    • Do I have to wear a face covering indoors if I show proof of vaccination? Yes, face coverings will be required indoors, regardless of vaccination status, other than while eating or drinking
    • Are you providing guests with face coverings? We ask that guests provide their own face coverings. However, there will be limited quantities available for those who do not have one.

    It's game week for me. Just picked up my tickets from a benefactor, I'll get to take the whole family. My youngest son still hasn't been to a Michigan game of any kind yet, which means a week of stories of going to Michigan games is on tap.

    Weather has been very mild up here this year; highs will be in the 50s this weekend, which isn't bad, and there might be some color left near the lake. We'll see how my trees hold up with the rain this week.

    UMD at UMD will be a big test, but there's a good chance that the best opponent Michigan faces this weekend could be Mankato. Quite the weekend. I am way, way excited.

    As you can tell; this is the most I've posted here in years. WT and JoeZ, you will be annoyed to find that UMD still passes out sheets of paper tickets. Have mine in my hand as I speak.
    Was very glad to receive real paper tickets from UMD. We are really looking forward to our visit to Duluth. Four high quality teams in this tournament. Will be a real test for our youngsters but we have a good group of seniors to give them leadership. Hoping the boys can continue to score like they have. Expecting some good fall color somewhere on our trip as we travel through both peninsulas.

    3,000 games! That's a lot of hockey. Last night was Michigan's 3,000th hockey game. In college hockey only Minnesota has more.

    Also we had a couple basketball players in the stands. During the 1st intermission when I was waiting in line to get a cup of coffee Hunter Dickinson, Terrance Williams and (I think it was) Moussa Diabate came in. They sat in sect. 22 row 1.

    I must be doing something wrong- I went into the app, "add to wallet" and now I have both of our tickets ready to be held next to the scanner. Not the one with the code, but the one that you just hold the phone near. Like I'm all ready to go.

    (BTW, this isn't for this weekend, or even in two weeks- we had trips planned before the schedule came out)

    I got my tickets downloaded to my phone after numerous attempts but when I got to the rink and tried to show them all I got were two totally blue squares - no ticket info. Being one of those older people who doesn't know what they are doing, I took the phone to the ticket window to see if someone there could get my tickets to show. After about 10 minutes she gave up and printed out tickets for me. On Monday I went to the ticket office and they printed out the remainder of the season for me. I will keep trying to get my phone to work since I will have to go through the same thing with our Women's Basketball season tix.

    As expected, the digital tickets resulted in longer lines getting in (at least for us at the North entrance 15 minutes before puck drop). Felt like a self serve grocery check out where I'm angry about being behind the old person that doesn't know what they're doing.

    Heard from a coworker that is technologically challenged that she ended up calling her husband (who had arrived separately before her) to come down and figure out the ticket because she couldn't.

    Hopefully it'll get better as the season progresses and people get used to the digital tickets. I was a bit upset when I saw the people behind me had physical tickets. Looked like they were general admission tickets from a quick glance.

    The exhibition game looked great. Season officially starts this weekend with Lake State visiting.

    Shorter intermissions and no TV time outs. That made a big difference. Wish it was like that all the time.

    Did anyone else notice how early we got out of the game last night?
    The box score reports the game duration as 1:59! They were talking about it on the radio post game. One thing they mentioned was that the intermissions were cut to only 12 minutes each, a carry-over from last season. That's fine with me. 2 hours is fine with me. And the 7:00 starting times are just about perfect.

    It seems all too complicated now.
