    Those days are gone. Too much competition for the entertainment dollar, not to mention all the streaming. I watched six events (hockey, BB, golf) yesterday from the comfort of my media room. And a big difference is you're not going to get the "neutral" fans, because unless they are die-hards, why spent $100 when your team is not playing, especially when you can see all the games from home?

    Not me! I'm glad to see the devotion and support for one's team.
    It's just a lot of fans don't have the depth financially to have that luxury.

    Not that I am arguing that playing in St. Paul isn't an advantage when the Gophers are there, but I think one of the arguments people made, that had some validity, is that their home rink is Olympic sized, and the X is NHL sized.

    PC beat Cornell 8-5 in the finals, I believe.
    I guess PC will try to avenge losing in OT in 2016 instead?

    Add to that, if we’re still botching about the final five, that was essentially a two-hour or less drive for St. Cloud, Duluth, MSU. It was less than a six-hour drive for Wisconsin, North Dakota, Bemidji. Tech isn’t much further.

    Yeah, for Anchorage, Denver, CC, and UNO it probably sucked.

    But there was a zero percent chance for it being held in Omaha or Anchorage. Fargo May have been an option, but more Sioux fans live in the cities than Fargo or Grand Forks and they never have travel issues anyways.

    Sure, Denver and CC might have had some legit gripes, but since gate was split starting from the first round on IIRC, it was in the interest of the conference to have it in the most central location with a large rink. But to be honest I don’t think Denver can whine because I’ve seen like two of their fans on the road ever.

    Right. Calling a man by a female title is perfectly reasonable.

    I'm just glad he recognizes my regal greatness.

    Cornell should be forced to forfeit this game after trying to break out from behind their own net.

    That wouldn't have been a goal if Providence didn't have home ice.

    Per rule it shouldn't have counted...looked to me like he not only turned his skate, his forward momentum directed the puck into the net.


    (c) A goal shall not be allowed if the following occurs:

    An attacking player kicks the puck directly into the goal or a kicked puck deflects off any player, including goalkeeper, prior to entering the goal.
    The puck has been thrown or deliberately directed into the goal by any means other than a stick, even if subsequently deflecting off any player, including goalkeeper, prior to entering the goal.

    I'm in favour of having ererything that is last touched by anything other than a defender or an attacking player's stick being disallowed. That would eliminate a lot of grey area. It would take away goals deflected off attackers in front of the net, but I think it would be better that way.

    Providence's power play isn't anything special. The penalty kills they are facing have been terrible.

    Announcers said that last night Cornell hotel lost power. Providence went to their facility for ice, whirlpool, inversion, etc.
    I will not be out cheered in my own building.
