Road map needed to find Gophers on TV this Friday

Posted by: Roman Augustoviz under Bemidji State, Gophers post season Updated: March 9, 2011 - 11:30 PM
Wanna watch the Gophers vs. Alaska Anchorage game on Friday?
 
Check your alternates. The game will not be on FSN. The Wild vs. Dallas Stars will be there.
 
But the Gophers can be found on one of 12 alternate channels depending where you live. The same scenario applies Sunday, if the two teams split the first two games and a third game is needed. Sunday night FSN will air the Timberwolves vs. Golden State.
 
The middle game will be on FSN.
 
The alties (two in italics added late):

Bemidji State drew 62,847 fans this its 16 home hockey games at the new Sanford Center. That's an average of 3,928 fans per game.
 
Both Gophers games last weekend were sellouts with crowds of 4,373.

The Sanford Center is a comfy, classy building. A nice place to see a hockey game.
