  1. I was at both of this weekend’s PSU v Michigan games at Pegula Ice Arena in State College, PA. Penn State is so much fun to watch this year. They look like they will be a tough team to beat. The Smirnov/Richard/Sturtz line, in particular, is wreaking havoc on defenses, while defense and goaltending seem noticeably upgraded over last year.
