Hockey day tomorrow, and, the kickoff of the NHL season. #1 Gophers vs #6 North Dakota, and Wild vs Avalanche.
Gophers have been destroying college hockey. They succeeded in beating then #1 ranked Boston College 3 weeks ago...which lead to the Gophers current #1 ranking...which continued with the beating of #2 Notre Dame two weeks later...last night, they beat #6 ranked North Dakota, and play them again tonight in the tail end of a two game series.
The Wild open their season tonight against Colorado. A new era of Wild hockey begins tonight. With the additions of Suter and Parise, the front office is attempting to put a team on the map that the state of hockey deserves.
