The markings on the ice for the NCAA tournament were painted over the Sound Tigers’ markings, with more ice on top of that for the college games. After Yale and Duluth finished up last night, that ice and paint had to come up.
Most of it did. Some of it didn’t. Digging up what didn’t was part of what led to today’s game being postponed due to the ice conditions. They’ll play tomorrow at 1 (Syracuse wants to get out as quickly as possible, in no small part because the Crunch has an 11 a.m. game in Toronto on Wednesday). Free general admission on Monday, if you can make it. Those who held tickets can get refunds from where they bought them, or they can exchange them for tickets to any of the three other remaining home games.
Lousy break. Looked like a great crowd for Frans Nielsen bobblehead day.
Lines for a game that didn’t happen:
F: Romano-Colliton (A)-Rakhshani
D: Katic-Reese (A)
We shall see if they remain the same. Never actually made it down to that end of the back of the house.
