Well, Hello there!
It’s been a bad year for posts here at Laker Hockey Blog. Between not able to go to games and what’s going on with the world at large, it’s been hard to find the passion to report this season. But something that happened tonight warrants a post.
With Minnesota State-Mankato being upset this afternoon by the Northern Michigan University Wildcats, and the Lakers skinning the Beavers, we will have an all UP WCHA finals slated for tomorrow night.
NMU Wildcats vs. LSSU Lakers for the Sauer Trophy, and an Auto Bid into the NCAA Tournament.
Should the Lakers win it, it will be the first time since the 1995-96 campaign that the team will have made the big show, and a new banner hanging in Abel Arena.
There’s still 60+ minutes of game to play tomorrow, but hopes are high that this year may be the year. But no matter what, we here at LHB and the Laker Fanbase are proud of all the players, especially considering the circumstances they’ve had to endure for the season – between COVID outbreaks and empty stands, it has to be tough.
So let’s all wish the Lakers luck tomorrow night. Game goes live on 99.5 Yes FM, both over the air and online tomorrow night at 8:07 Eastern Time.
