Quite a weekend so far, including a nice drive on Friday -- long, but easy and uneventful -- and a great day yesterday with friends, food, and hockey. And what hockey! Cornell has been doing a lot of heart-attack-inducing come-from-behind hockey lately, and yesterday afternoon's 3-2 win was just that. They were down 2-0, but Blake Gallagher got a single goal for the Red in the second period, and then Colin Greening and Evan Barlow each scored late in the third -- Greening's came with under four minutes left and Barlow's just 17.2 seconds before the end of the third. Northeastern must've been ready for overtime, but Cornell took it away.
I also took pictures and press conference notes for CollegeHockeyNews.com in part of the second game, after enjoying some food in the arena's bar with the gang.
Lunch yesterday was an impressive tapas experience at San Chez, which I'll gladly recommend to anyone visiting Grand Rapids. Lots of variety, good sangria, and excellent coffee.
Grand Rapids is pretty rainy today, as it was last night, so we're going to look for brunch in the building, and someplace to watch the early game not too far away. Tonight at 8 is the midwest regional final, Cornell vs a Bemidji State that pulled off a brash upset last night, beating Notre Dame 5-1. Tune in on ESPNU!
