SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. -- Greetings from Taffy Abel Arena, where the UMD Bulldogs embark on their 67th year of varsity college men's hockey with a game against Lake Superior State.
This quaint facility seats around 4,000 people, and it's a big alumni weekend on campus, so we should have a decent crowd tonight.

Schmidt - Oleksuk - Brown
Basaraba - Hendrickson - Grun
DeLisle - Flaherty - Seidel
Olsen - Montgomery

Olson - Faulk

For UMD, all players made the trip, so there are a number of players (seven) who are scratched. Those are forwards Cody Danberg and Max Tardy, defensemen Chad Huttel, Trent Palm, Luke McManus, and Scott Kishel, and goalie Christian Gaffy.
All but Danberg (knee) are healthy.
Gametime is 6:05 p.m. Central, and the broadcast is available online here.
