Someone must of forgotten to explain to Princeton how these Holiday Tournaments work. The first round games are just a mere formality where the host team skates around, makes a few snappy passes and scores a few fancy goals to build the gate for the Saturday night Championship game. If the cupcake wants to play a good game they are obliged to do so in the "Consolation Game" in front of a handful of fans.
The dilemma for Denver hockey fans is what to do on Saturday. Show up at the Third Place game or watch the "Championship" game in the evening?
The good news for the Pioneer hockey team is that they have cleared up some precious time on what is sure to be a busy New Years Eve social schedule.
