Weekend Plans (Dec. 4-6)

December 4, 2009

The weekend is here and it’s time for hockey! Some good matches going on around the state this weekend, but sort of slim pickings on Friday night so I’ll propose some other options.

FRIDAY
High School
Brebeuf v. Bloomington
@ Carmel Ice Skadium, 7:45 pm
This is one of two high school games going on in the state on Friday night. Both teams are having miserable seasons and look to show signs of improvement

Carmel Gold v. Cathedral-Chatard
@ Carmel Ice Skadium, 9:30 pm
Although league standings may not show it, I expect Carmel Gold to take this game with little difficulty.

College
Purdue v. Robert Morris College-Peoria
@Pan Am Plaza, 7:30 pm
A recently reviewed Purdue takes on RMCP. Both squads seek to improve their records with the hope they’ll make the National Tournament

IHL
Komets v. Quad City Mallards
@ Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, 8 pm
I’m pretty sure this game violates the Geneva Convention as the beating the Mallards are going to take will be a crime against humanity. Although the same can be said about their play this season.

Bonus
So there isn’t a lot of hockey going on this Friday. I’ve decided to offer some suggestions for those wanting something hockey-related but cannot get to it.
– I’m currently in the process of watching the CBC documentary series, Hockey: A Peoples History. It’s worth a watch and if you can’t find it nearby, there’s always bittorrent.
– Tonight the Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on the top-ranked Miami Redhawks at 7:35 in Oxford. The audio can be found here. If I find a stream I’ll post it.
-If you have a PS3 or XBOX, NHL 10 is one of the best sports video games ever made. Always a great way to spend a night.
-If you don’t have a PS3 or XBOX, there’s always nhl94online.com.

SATURDAY
High School
Zionsville v. Lawrence
@ Fishers Forum, 7:15 pm
A good Zionsville team takes on a solid Lawrence club.

South Stars Red v. Bloomington
@ Perry Park Ice Arena, 8:30 pm
This game features two teams that have trouble tallying up wins. Usually these games are as advertised, but every once in a while the desperation for Ws makes for exciting hockey.

Evansville v. Carmel Gold
@ Carmel Ice Skadium, 8:45 pm
Evansville and Carmel Gold are near each other in the standings. Hopefully this parity will lead to a close game.

College
Purdue v. Robert Morris College-Peoria
@ Pan Am Plaza, 1:00 pm

Sunday
Munster v. Carmel Gold
@ Carmel Ice Skadium, 10 am
If you’re willing to get up to watch this on Sunday morning, you will probably not be disappointed.

Adams v. Carrol
@ McMillen Ice Arena, 2:40 pm
This seems like one of the better games on Sunday, featuring two teams that have played well all season.

Munster v. Carmel Blue
@ Carmel Ice Skadium, 1:15
Munster has looked incredible this season and for those in Central Indiana, this is the last chance to see the team before the State Tournament.

GAME OF THE WEEK
GotW honors go to Munster v. Carmel Gold. Both teams look fantastic and if you can get up in time for the 10 am start, you will be rewarded with great high school hockey.
