Not a bad day here in Anchorage. A little warmer than in Fairbanks, but still as cloudy and dry. The first line sheet turned in for this year is filled with interesting combinations. Some young blood sprinkled in among seasoned veterans. Check the charts below to keep track. I'll put numbers in the first set here, but keep track of the roster for numbers if you want them in future posts (including tomorrow).
Tonight's games will be on the radio on 820 AM in Fairbanks, as well as online at www.820sports.com (click the "Listen Live" link in the top menu, and the subsequent big red button to grab the streaming file. If your computer doesn't know what to do with it, just open it with iTunes and you should be good to go). The games will not stream video online this time around, your only bet for video is if you're in Fairbanks on Fox channel 7 later on this evening after the Baseball playoffs are over.
But be sure to tune into my Twitter feed (@NanookHockey) during the game for live updates.

Click the Read More link for a special surprise...Just before the guys got to the rink, check out the locker room land scape. Props to the equipment manager Scott Eastman for setting the guys up in style. The team got the privilege to use the Alaska Aces locker room for the weekend. Gotta admit, that's a pretty cool deal...
