    Lake Placid Attendance

    I know it's early, but I have my tickets for the Championship game! I can't go on Friday - that whole accountant-during-tax-season thing! I'm bringing my seven year old who's been obsessed with the Miracle on Ice and I thought I'd show him a game in the rink plus go through the museum.

    Last game I attended there was the epic 2OT final between Norwich and St. Norbert (I was the goal judge where the winning goal was scored). Still the best college hockey game I've ever attended.

    What a great experience. Last time I was there was for Hobart's only frozen four in 2009. Worried to buy tickets so as not to jinx the Statesmen unless they make it. Too hard a road to assume anything at this point.

    BJ O'Brien stopped 70 of 72 shots in that marathon...led SNC to the National Title the following season against Adrian in Minneapolis.
    He is the current goalie coach at Augsburg.

    Re: Lake Placid Attendance

    Without any even remotely local teams in the mix (P'burgh, Norwich, Potsdam, Utica, M'bury, Oswego, etc) those fans that show up this year are the real die-hard D3 hockey fans.

    I wonder if the possibility of losing even more money this year than is typically lost, will have any bearing on the NCAA's championship location paradigm moving forward, and they'll lean more toward campus sites?

    I remember that game clearly-it was edge of the seat forever. Was also there when Hobart won. So now I am curious which I have been to:
    97- at Middlebury
    99- at Norwich
    00- in Superior
    02- in Middlebury
    03- at Norwich
    04- at Norwich
    08- Lake Placid
    09- Lake Placid
    10- Lake Placid
    12- Lake Placid
    13- Lake Placid

    Fair amount... and in 2003,04,05,06 and 08 also went to D1 Frozen Four's.

    Re: Lake Placid Attendance

    Looking forward to get back for the first time since UW-Eau Claire won in 2013.
    Called that entire weekend on Plattsburgh's Student station in what was three pretty good games.
    Was very surprised Oswego blew a 2-0 lead in that title game.

    I will be there. Looking forward to it. I donít like the campus sites thing. It makes it difficult to get tickets if your team isnít 1 of the 4 participants.

    The way Gertsakis was playing in both the SUNYAC and NCAA Tournament, added in with how good that top line of Moodie, Whitelaw, and Rodrigues was, plus the rest of the seniors, I just thought it was their year.

    I do believe that that was the last time ESPN broadcast the game.
