The Big Ten also had considered Omaha, Minneapolis and Detroit, but this represents a bold statement about the conference’s desire to have a strong East Coast presence following the additions of Rutgers and Maryland. Washington D.C. will host the event in 2017.
The deal, which will be announced Tuesday, will have an interesting component not previously reported.
In both 2016 and 2017, MSG will host a “Big Ten Day” featuring a day-night, hockey-basketball doubleheader. Michigan and Penn State will duel in both sports, Delany said, on Jan. 30, 2016. The 2017 participants have yet to be determined.
No one else start one yet, so what the hell.

Michigan snapped their 3-game losing streak to the ECAC last night when they scored two goals in 29 seconds with less than 3 minutes to play.
Michigan can get to above .500 for the first time this season should they win tonight.

Didn't see a thread yet. Scoreless so far. U-M on the PK.
Another Saturday night, another football sludgefart, another hoping for a hockey weekend split.

(Man, I really don't want to lose to Penn State again.)
Gonna drink this loss away, and watch the Wings take on the Leafs tonight.
There will be nothing routine when the Red Wings arrive at the Air Canada Centre.
"Stickgate" has blown up in Toronto, with fans feeling they were snubbed when the Leafs decided to forgo the traditional stick salute after Thursday’s victory over Tampa.
The Wings are coming off a big win in Winnipeg and are closing out a three-game road trip.
