Re: NCAA Hockey 2020-2021 Season

Do we have any idea if/when games beyond these first eight will be announced? I assume they are waiting to see if this goes well before continuing but imagine they must have some type of future schedule mapped out.

Re: Gophers vs Buckeyes Nov 23 & 24

Before Burke scored, I was typing out a comment about how Nappier would have been a basket case on the flight home had the game ended 1-0 after he derped on Reedy's goal. I wonder how he's doing now. I was surprised when the refs waived off the high stick during play right before what would have bee...
