somehow we're only 124th
Puck drop at 7:35pm. Michigan officially opens Yost Ice Arena for the 42nd time.
For those in SE Michigan with Comcast, the game is on CN900.
Otherwise, you can listen to the free live audio on MGoBlueTV.
Been checking BTN Plus every day since they're pretty slow and I found something absolutely fantastic.
Every single Michigan Hockey the rest of the season save the trip to MTU (because what TV crew wants to go there?) will be televised or streamed. There is one game left that has not been picked and that's the Friday night game against RPI but I'd bet on BTN Plus or CN900 picking it up.
Every B1G game will be televised. Before, they mysteriously had a blank next to their TV indication but I suspected that they would be filled by BTN Plus. I had no idea how committed they were to broadcasting hockey games.
More good news: BOTH games against New Hampshire tomorrow and Saturday will be televised, as well.

Go Wings! We need one team to win to get over this state of Michigan sports curse.
Michigan's final exhibition game of the season.
They face Wilfrid Laurier from Waterloo, Ontario.
Wilfrid Laurier is 2-1-0 this season against Canadian conference opponents but were horrific last season. Their only game against an NCAA school was against Bowling Green in a 7-1 loss.
The game be seen live on BTN Plus (subscription required) or you can listen to the live audio on MGoBlueTV.com for free.
It's hockey night in Michigan and we can finally get away from the football mess to cheer on the hockey team!
As I projected last week, #8 Michigan at #9 Ferris State will be televised by Comcast 900.
If you have Comcast and are in SE Michigan, it is obviously channel 900. If you want to watch online, FSU has a cheap one-time stream fee for the game.
Comcast is still working on finalizing their TV schedule for Hockey. I'd be SHOCKED if they don't televise home series against New Hampshire.
I'll watch Football for the first 30 minutes and then will switch over to Hockey.
