Off the top, let me offer a huge congratulations to the University of Minnesota-Duluth Women's hockey team. They won their fifth (FIFTH!!!) NCAA National Championship yesterday, and it took three overtimes to get it done. Amazing game, and has not seen the light of day on any news broadcast. However, this is the "State of Hockey" and this is a blog for the entire state (and beyond), not just the Twin Cities.
Congrats to them. A dynasty they have become. Just don't tell any of the main stream hockey guys. Five titles in ten years, they'll probably want to ban the NCAA.
So, with that...
First of All:
