It’s a big day of hockey around the state. For the fourth year, Minnesota Hockey is participating in Try Hockey For Free Day. The event is designed to welcome kids ages 4 to 9 to lace up the skates and give hockey a try.
On Tuesday night’s Game 3 of the Wild-versus-Blackhawks series, the Wild reported attendance was a record 19,416. So, Ruth and Greg asked: How does the Wild determine game attendance? “We get a report at the end of the night that tells us how many tickets were sold and that’s the number, like every other sports team, we put out,” said Wild spokesman Ryan Stanzel.
The Minnesota Vikings’ final game at the Metrodome is Sunday, but they aren’t the only ones moving out. After 24 years, Minnesotans have been lacing up their skates and hitting the concourses for the RollerDome. But Monday night’s skate was the second to last inside the dome. After Friday, the RollerDome will be history.
