I don't recall the hockey team winning it all. What I do recall was that they televised the state tourney every year there during mid day all week long on one or more of the local networks picking that over the soap operas. Teachers wheeled TVs in to the classrooms so we could watch it during class. When I try to describe that to people down here in the South they look at me like I'm crazy and don't believe me at all. Ahh good old Minnesota and Wisconsin high school hockey. Nothing like it. And, you are correct.. The Braves are now something like.....the blaze... geez
I can't remember if Burnsville won it all or not, my recollection is they sent a team to the state tourny a few years in a row before Bloomington Jefferson began their dominance.
Back on the pro side - what an opening round! 4 upsets and 4 top seeds advance. Couldn't believe how effectively Montreal just sytmied the Cap's. The Cap's need look no further than their power play - an incredibly bad 1 for 30 for the series from the best power play in the league during the regular season. Well, I got the Western confernce guessed right, but I didn't see both Buffalo and NJ going out in the first round. So, now Crosby, Malkin and the Pen's get their crack at Halak.
