With the sweep of the Gophers this weekend the Seawolves, as you may have heard, will be playing at the Red Baron WCHA Final Five. The action starts Thrusday and I'm here with some helpful info:
This isn't totally complete yet as we have to await the winner of Game 3 between CC and Wisconsin to set it completely.
Quarterfinals (All times are Alaska)
(6) Bemidji State vs. (3) Minnesota-Duluth
(5) Alaska Anchorage vs. (4) Colorado College/Wisconsin winner
Bemidji/Duluth winner vs. (2) Denver
UAA/CC/Wisconsin winner vs. (1) North Dakota
Broadmoor Trophy Championship Game
With a quick look the games right now are listed on Fox College Sports Central (Ch. 302 on GCI) live for all games. No word on GCI channel 1 right now but we shall see.
If you are interested in making the last minute trip to St. Paul here's a quick rundown of some prices for plane tickets to MSP:
Expedia and everybody else: $1260 (stopover in PHX, and it's on US Airways who really really sucks, that $14 you'd save will be spent on bag fees and food)
So yeah, it ain't cheap
A quick search at Ticketmaster revealed plenty of ticket packages available for around $168. Single game tickets for UAA's game are around $48.
They may be expensive but keep in mind, the schools get the bulk of the money from the WCHA playoffs, so you're kinda just giving money to UAA.
That's all I have for now. I'm sure either Donald or I will update as we go.
