  1. So if their game is Saturday afternoon, why can’t they be back in Duluth in time to skate with the kids at the Decc on Sunday?

  2. Geez, give them a break. They’re playing on the East Coast over the weekend, then flying back here Saturday night. Do they get to have a good night’s rest and a day off or is that too much to ask? The mens team will be there since they’re off this weekend.
