JACK HITTINGER COLUMN: Santa gives gift of confidence to Bemidji State hockey team heading into holiday break
I met Santa Claus last weekend at the Sanford Center. He gave me exactly what I wanted Saturday night: An overtime-free hockey game. That’s right, readers: As the final seconds ticked off during Bemidji State’s 5-1 victory against then No. 10-ranked Denver that night, I became...
