So the blog has made it to Big Rapids this morning, seeing the first signs of snow flurries so far on this trip. Got in to Ewigleben arena this morning for the Nanooks preskate at 11:00AM and the guys looked pretty good. Seemed to have a lot of energy and they look ready to go. 

Ferris is an interesting place for hockey. The rink is pretty small and intimate. It seats roughly 2,000 people but the ceilings are maybe 20 ft. high. If that. With bleacher seating that wraps around one side of the rink and maybe 15 rows. The highlight is definitely the press box, though. And hopefully a couple of Nanook wins.

Ferris definitely has some skill players to keep in check, but I think the 'Nooks have more firepower in the top lines. Definitely going to be a good series to watch, that's for sure.
