Good evening (if you are in Alaska) and thanks for tuning in for the pregame of the Alaska Nanooks game against CCHA foe Ferris State. This will be the first CCHA matchup this year for both teams so it should be interesting to see how both teams play.
Not sure if there will be a live blog in game but I will try and get in between periods to give you some tidbits of information and what is going on.
Here are some pictures of early in the contest, probably before you were able to see with your own eyes.

You knew it was coming. Pregame. Large Polar Bear with players coming out of the mouth. You love it.
Sorry folks. No live blog tonight. You can, however, follow the game on Twitter at Alaska Nanooks
I will be back periodically. Stayed tuned to both here and Twitter for updates.
The Nanooks fell behind early but fought back for a 1-1 tie at the intermission.
Blair Riley scored for Ferris State at the 14:31 mark to make it 1-0 Ferris State but then Nik Yaremchuk scored with 1.1 seconds left in the period, on the power play, to tie the score.
