With six writers, two editors and two photographers, USCHO executive editor Scott Brown has his hands full doling out the assignments and coordinating the coverage. We have four seats in the press box and people will be cycling in and out based on their job. I will be in the press box for the second semifinal.
People are pitching story ideas to Brown, including Dave Hendrickson, who wants to do an in-depth piece on UND’s cheerleaders. That one’s nixed.
For this game, I have the choice of watching this game on TV in the pressroom or trying to find an empty seat in the stands. I locate one in the nosebleed section (near USCHO’s publisher, Tim Brule, who apparently doesn’t have much clout in matters like this), but there really isn’t a bad seat in the building.
The first period is a strange one, with UND having a distinct advantage in puck possession, but BC getting three goals. The Sioux would have their chances, but then the Eagles would take the puck down the ice and score.
More from this game later.
