It's Friday, I'm in Love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate...

Badger Men @ UND -- Friday 7:30 CT, Saturday 7:00 CT
TV: Friday on NHL Network, Saturday none
Video webcast: FightingSioux.com for $5.95/day or $9.95/month
Audio webcast: yahoosports for $4.95/mo or FightingSioux.com (free w/ audio-only pass?)

(I'm a bit confused about the Sioux audio webcast -- it's listed as $7.95 or free with audio-only subscription, and the audio-only subscription is listed as free, so why would anyone pay $7.95? Perhaps a nice Sioux fan can tell me what I'm missing here.)

It sounds like Todd Milewski will be doing a live interactive game blog again, so stop by The IceHouse for that. Also, I'd expect Paul Capobianco to be blogging from the game as well.

Todd has the projected lines for Friday, same as what was posted yesterday:
Murray-Geoffrion-Davies
P. Johnson-Thurber-Stepan
Mitchell-Turnbull-Dolan
Gorowsky-Bohmbach

Smith-McBain
McDonagh-Little
Springer-Gardiner
Goloubef

Connelly
Gudmandson
Ben Grotting and Craig Johnson are also on the trip.
