ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The trip up north is always interesting, and this one is no different.
Not only is UMD the first WCHA team to close the regular season here in Anchorage, but it happens on Iditarod weekend. The annual sled-dog marathon gets underway with a ceremonial start in downtown Anchorage Saturday, less than a mile from where the Bulldog team is staying.
If I make it over there, I will post some pictures and such. I hear it's an awesome event, so my intent is to check it out.
Anyway, we have hockey here. The Seawolves are the opponent, and a finish as high as second is on the line for UMD.
