    I grew up in Minneapolis and have never once attended a hockey game. City schools weren't big into hockey, that was the burbs and outstate folks. MN may be a hockey state but Minneapolis isn't really a hockey city

    This Breck vs. Thief River Falls game is much better than the last one. It should be a good last 3 minutes.

    Thief River Falls goes up 2, draws a penalty that should give them a power play for the remainder of the game and then gives up a short-handed goal. WTF?

    Section 3A is garbage. Should not be allowed at state anymore.

    And [​IMG] goes with the 'dye your hair putrid yellow' look for the tourney.

    This almost never works.

    I remember [​IMG] doing this a few years ago. What's up with north suburbs doing this?

    I remember a team (I think it was Elk River) at the beginning of the decade that players alternated dyed yellow hair and black hair. Looked ridiculous.

    White Bear Lake loses in the first round. :shocker:
    Actually now that I think about it, I think Elk River just did the dyed yellow hair. It was Warroad that had the alternating black/yellow.

    That is basically Canada. I'm not sure if we even claim them. I know I don't.

    And if not Canada, its basically North Dakota. I can't remember the last time a Warroad player has played for the Gophers, guys like Oshie end up at North Dakota.

    Keith Ballard and Jon Waibel were both from Baudette which is near there but neither played for Warroad. I can't really remember who was from Warroad vs. Roseau vs. Baudette/Lake of the Woods, etc.

    I'm not knocking the section. I'm just making fun of teams that allegedly dye their hair odd colors.

    I guess I'm pulling for whoever wins the Maple Grove/Grand Rapids game to win it all, though as long as the AA winner isn't St. Thomas or Eden Prairie, I'll be content.

    I do want to see Mittelstadt have a nice tourney.

    Not yet. The guy who does it pulls from both A and AA, and AA doesn't start until later today. I'd think it would pop up tomorrow or maybe this weekend.

    Haven't seen one yet. I know there is a stream set up at prep45.com, but it looks like it's a pay stream.

    Minnesota State Hockey Tournament is one of the best high school events in the country! Pulling for the hometown(across the river) Moorhead Spuds and Grand Rapids(good friend has a kid on the team). Friend of mine is doing the color for the Class A tourney.

    March is the best time of year with all the high school tournaments, NCAA basketball and hockey, spring Training, etc.

    Aaron Ness from Roseau played for the Gophers as well, though his dad played for UND.

    Good showing by the northern schools this year. Grand Rapids beats Moorhead for their 4th state title, first since 1980.

    Moorhead is now 0-8 in championship games.
