So unless the WCHA can convince them to simulcast the WCHA.tv feed (which has never happened, ever under the WCHA), having an RSN pay for an HD production and uplink truck to drive to Houghton just to carry one game on short notice isn't happening.
And for all the complaints people had with ASN, it was nice to finally have college hockey on Comcast Sportsnet Chicago.
*Edit* Boy would the championship game make for some compelling TV though. Local campus site, raucous crowd, winner goes to the NCAA drama... It's a da** shame that it's so expensive to roll the previously mentioned HD truck, because this game is going to make the B1G Championship game crowd look like an intra-squad scrimmage. Will give the NCHC a run for it's money (if the title game doesn't have tUMD and/or NoDak)

I didn't post it earlier because I didn't want to dump that on Twitter at 5am.
I'm going to take solace with looking at the two team's performances since January. BG is 7 and 6 and ended the regular season with a 3 game win streak that they've since extended to 7. Whereas MTU went 5-5-3 and ended with a split with NMU (yes, I know we got swept by NMU in a series that was completely lopsided in BG's favor except for the scores). Couple that with BG having a supposed harder trek through the tournament to date and sweeping their opponents, I would say that BG has the momentum and advantage going into this game. Wishful thinking? Maybe, but I don't think so.
With all of that said, I do expect this to be one helluva game. Just wish I could be there to see it in person.

My only wish is that they don't use the anally rule-stickler face off linesman for this game. The delays were weirdly long and attention-seeking from that guy, I think everyone had enough of that.
I'll be in Florida, and without access to the feed (but given the quality of WCHA.TV this year, that's probably a good thing ).

A sad stab at the glory of the regular season shootouts (75% of UA_'s Governor's Cups were won thanks to them). I was also the one that got Twitter confirmation that OT was still in effect for the playoffs in some long forgotten thread.
Go junior Bruins!
