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...

Paul Nelson fishing column for Oct. 16: Anglers still hoping for some fall fishing
