BEMIDJI — The top teams in women’s hockey already know the Sanford Center well.

But never before have all of them converged on Bemidji at the same time.

The WCHA Final Faceoff begins today and for the first time, the Sanford Center and BSU take a starring role — even if the Beavers aren’t playing this time around.
