BEAVER HOCKEY GAMEDAY: No. 3 Minnesota At Bemidji State, Game 1 (10-18-13)

Coming to you LIVE from the Sanford Center, it’s the first Bemidji State home game of the season!

The Beavers host No. 3 Minnesota in just under two hours.

My preview in the Pioneer is here. I also wrote a feature about how important this series is to the Beavers — especially the Minnesotans on the team — in Thursday’s paper.

Read Jason Gonzalez’ coverage of the series in the Star Tribune. He wrote Thursday about the Serratore family reunion on his blog. In today’s paper he has a piece on Gopher goaltender Adam Wilcox, who has started a mind-boggling 39 consecutive games for Minnesota.

Speaking of that, Wilcox will start game No. 40 for the Gophers tonight. I have lines right here.
