We’re Here….

…A little early. We got to the building at about 1:00 pm. Nobody here but the USCHO guys and the CSTV crew setting up for today’s broadcast.

There were 5,625 people here yesterday, a great, great crowd. We beat the ECAC’s (4,851) in Albany (as well as Atlantic Hockey’s 3,900 and the CHA’s 1,100), quite an accomplishment.

This should be a great matchup. Plattsburgh was flying on the big ice yesterday, and St. Norbert brought their lunch pails and, of course, Kyle Jones.

One question…when will St. Norbert Score? The Green Knights have been shutout both times they have made the title game, both by Middlebury (2004 and 2008). One was 2:58 into overtime, so the streak is at 122:28. I’m sure Plattsburgh would like that to extend that a bit longer.

I’ll be liveblogging the game, so check back often.
