We just arrived at Xcel Energy Center, which means our state boys' hockey tournament experience can officially begin for 2010.
We can still remember our first tournament -- and the first tournament at Xcel Energy Center -- in 2001. Elk River had an unbelievable team that year, and the Elks captured the Class 2A title. That probably remains our favorite tournament experience.
As we descend into four days of hockey madness, we ask -- as we usually do this time of year -- for your favorite boys' hockey state tournament memory.
