Learn About Union Hockey

As I batten down the hatches in Proctor, preparing for the storm the weather terrorists say will leave me with no heat and electricity for a month (possibly exaggerated), here is a quick link for those looking to learn a bit more about Friday's opponent, the Union Dutchmen.

For those who don't know, Union is making their first NCAA appearance when they play UMD Friday in Bridgeport, Conn., and the splash page on their athletics site notes all the historical achievements they've reached this year.

Among them:

Most power play goals in a single season
Most wins by a coach in school history
Most single-season wins by a goaltender
Best scoring offense and defense
Most wins in school history
First Cleary Cup (ECAC regular season championship) in school history

I tried to help their UMD knowledge a bit by doing a Q&A with the guys at the Union Hockey Blog.

They have reciprocated, and I'll be posting answers to my Union hockey questions later.
