Feb 22s are crazy. We’ll see. They had a Villanova game here this afternoon and got the last pallets off for the changeover at 6:33 p.m. Finished flooding about four minutes before warmup. It’s not exactly frigid out there. We’ll see how the ice does. But whatever. It’s Philly. A big crowd’s expected. The Phantoms […] [Read More]

Silver for Chu, the U.S.: Canada wins women’s hockey

on
One more Olympic heartbreak for Fairfield’s Julie Chu. Canada came back from two goals down in the final 3:26 and beat the United States 3-2 in overtime in Sochi on Marie-Philip Poulin’s five-on-three power-play goal. The United States won gold in 1998, the first time women’s hockey was contested at the Olympics. Canada has won […] [Read More]
