Upcoming live blog: Queen's and Ryerson bring Slap Shot back!

A quick note that I'll be live-blogging tonight's Queen's-Ryerson men's hockey game, which is at 7:30 p.m. at the Memorial Centre. It's Slap Shot night, so people in attendance are encouraged to dress up (and they apparently will have beer gardens, which is a huge step for men's hockey; we haven't seen those since the glory days of Jock Harty Arena). The game itself will be big too, as the 7-13-2 Gaels desperately need a win. They're four games behind the 11-9-2 University of Toronto Varsity Blues for the division lead and three games behind the 9-9-4 Ottawa Gee-Gees for the final playoff spot.

Here's a few links to pique your interest for the game:

- Amrit wrote a great story on last week's Queen's-RMC game with a bit of a preview for tonight. [Queen's Journal].

- Scott Turcotte has a solid profile of Queen's goalie Brady Morrison in today's paper. [Queen's Journal].

- Chris Thompson of Queen's Athletics has a good preview up on their site [].

- And I have a piece on Queen's assistant coach Alyn McCauley in today's paper (as seen on the excellent Pension Plan Puppets!)
