  1. That's true. I didn't catch that this thread was only about streaming. Will be watching on our cable.
  2. I just read that Midco WILL be carrying the Sunday night game at 8 PM North Dakota time in Bismarck/Mandan.
  3. I want to make a comment about the play-by-play of UND hockey games. Does anyone else get tired of the constant babbling of both the guys in the booth? I ended up muting the game for a while after one of them started to comment on someone being on vacation in Italy and going to the top of a mountain......all this while play is going on! Someone in management needs to give some direction to these guys so they can do the job for which they are hired. Namely, a play-by-play announcer should do mostly just that. The color guy should make comments related to the game, but do it mostly when pla
  4. Reg was a special person. Not only as a player, but his commitment to hockey at all levels was unmatched. I have to date myself, but I did play against Reg when he was living in Crookston and played for their am. team the Pirates. I was in college, playing for the Blazers, and he turned me inside out and scored on a one on one goal. When I would see him at UND games or State High School Tournament games, he would always come over and say "Hi" and I would always remind him of how he totally burned me on that play, even though he was about a dozen years older than me. My condolences to his fa
  5. Toews has said the rumor of his vote against returning is false.
  6. You are correct, Jay played in the 1984-85 season and signed a pro contract in 1985. Do you know the circumstances of how Jay ended up playing in his one and only UND game? Maybe there was some other team-type brawl that preceded his getting into the line up?
  7. If my memory serves me right, that was the game that had the officials give all 4 UND right wings DQ penalties, making them ineligible to play in the next game. That led to a player ending up playing only that following, one game in his UND career (which was a brief one, at that). That player went on to play a number of years in the NHL and was on the Penguins' Stanley Cup winning team with Mario L. His name.......Jay Caufield, who had a football injury that ended his football career, but was cleared to play hockey (go figure). He had transferred to UND for football, coming from (I believe
  8. That's because Eddie didn't show up until the summer of 1986. I was one of the first people to meet him in the locker room when he first showed up to play in one of the evening coaches, pros, Sioux, juniors scrimmages during the summer hockey camp. Little did I know that he would become, not only a great college tender, but also a great NHLer.
  9. I seem to remember when an occasional fish would be tossed over the chicken wire at the Old, Old Barn.
  10. On a side note: Blackhawks beat Leafs 6-2 (Toews 2 goals, 2 assists, Caguila goal and stellar defensive play. (Kubalik scored twice, one of which was a backhand pass from Toews across the slot to the goalie's right, that Kubalik batted out of the air and into the net.) The line of Toews, Caguila, and Kubalik had 5 of the six goals! Great to hear that UND won tonight. Now get ready for the Dogs next week.
  11. Coach Woog was a one-of-a-kind. I especially liked it when Mazocco would start whining about some call/non-call and Doug would set him straight on why it was called that way. I have nothing but respect for a true legend of US hockey. RIP Coach Woog.
  12. I hope those fans who have been very critical of Berry and his staff will now stop to realize that you don't usually take talented freshmen into the NCHC and win a lot of games. Talent, alone, is not enough. The Hawks lost a lot of seasoned talent off that National Championship team and it wasn't easy to keep the level of play up to the desired standards. I think the addition of Karl G. has also had a great positive effect on the program. You might even suggest that the new practice times have been a plus, too. Berry and Dane and Karl know what needs to be done. Now that some of the "
  13. Maybe Bubs knows the guy. Bubs played in K and I believe he also was a coach there.
  14. I have posted this on a couple of other threads, but figured the more the better: Does anyone know of a venue where we could watch the Sioux hockey games next week with other UND fans in the Phoenix area? O'Sullivan's two bars have apparently closed their doors as of last year, so I guess they are not an option this year. Our flight to AZ will leave on Tuesday, so we would appreciate hearing any info on this before Tuesday morning.
  15. When we left AZ in late May last year, both the one in Mesa and one in a western suburb were closed. I had some friends that went to the one in Mesa to watch a game, and the place was locked up, apparently with a sign stating they were no longer open.
