CIS Nationals, game #1: StFX vs McGill

The tournament kicks off with the #2 McGill Redmen taking on the #5 StFX X-Men at 2pm at the AUC. These two teams last met on December 29th in Antigonish in a Christmas exhibition game that saw the X-Men win their 5th Keating Cup with a 6-5 OT victory.

This is the first time these two teams will meet at the Cup tournament. Mcgill has never advanced passed the semi-finals in five trips to Nationals, while the X-Men make their 11th appearance at Nationals, having last won right here in Fredericton in the spring of 2004 when they beat the V-Reds 3-2 in OT in the finals.

The game can be viewed as a webcast on the SSN network and listened to on CHSR radio.

I have tickets and I'd love to see the game, but hiking 2 km uphill is beyond my capabilities. Parking is non-existant on the hill - must have had to stake out a spot at 10 a.m.
