I'm excited to see what Kyle Rau has to show for himself for Eden Prairie. They are the favorites to win it but the cake eaters were too in 09 and got beat by the Spuds, so anything can happen.

ok so what channel is the tourney on, its usually on forty5 (45) but I have direct and don't have it. Any help appreciated.

I'm also excited to watch Rau play, you could see the talent when they won state when he was a sophmore. Should be fun to watch him this time around, I can't wait to see him in a Gopher uni.

In Bji, with an antenna, we do not get channel 45. However, if you go here kstc45.com and scroll down, you'll see a red box to click on to watch the State Tourney online. The direct link is prep45.kstc45.com

CBROOKS-as a former Hermantown Hawk, there's nothing I would love more than for the boys from TRF to hand the private schoolers from Breck their lunch on a platter. I'm still bitter about Breck winning the ship last year

It will be a big upset for TRF to beat Breck. They have some future stars on that team.

I'm also pulling for the Spuds in AA.

H-town wins 5-1. Alex was up 1-0 early in the 2nd but by the time I checked back (2nd intermission) Hermantown popped in 5.

I'll take New Ulm plus the 9 1/2 against STA......

Other than that ...St Thomas wins the class A portion easily.

Class AA

Quarterfinals: Thursday, March 10

Edina vs Blaine (11 a.m.)Blaine wins 4-3 in OT

Duluth East vs White Bear Lake (1 p.m.) I look "hope" for Duluth to choke this one away late.....3-2 WBL....

Eden Prairie vs Lakeville North (6 p.m.) 57 saves won't be enough for the Lakeville goalie "Lingren" in this one....4-1 EP

Eagan vs Moorhead (8 p.m.) Not sure on this one but I'm hoping Eagan can stun the Spuds and send them packing as is the norm for da spudster's : )

They lost to Eagan in sectional finals 1-0. They also lost to Eagan twice in the regular season by 1 goal each game. Eagan had the #1 seed so I don't know if there was a upset but two good teams battling for a spot at the Xcel.

Pier, how do you figure St Thomas Academy is going to "easily" take the Class A title? Hermantown has shown they can play with the big dogs, especially when they went into Eden Prairie's (#1 rank in class AA) rink and took them into overtime. If anything, it will be a great game. I don't see any team in class A "easily" taking home the ship.

    • I did put some runner rugs down the center 😁
    • This team is not going anywhere with  Tom Thibodeau as there coach.  
    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us.
