Hockey City Classic pucks get Michigan's name wrong
Between weather concerns and mislabeled pucks, Saturday's Hockey City Classic at got off to a rough start.
Warm weather made for poor ice conditions at Soldier Field in Chicago that pushed the Michigan vs. Michigan State nightcap of the doubleheader from 8 to 9:40 p.m. ET.
The pucks also were labeled "Michigan University" instead of "University of Michigan.
Perhaps a Spartans or Ohio State Buckeyes fan was responsible.
The poor weather also delayed the opener between Western Michigan and Miami University, pushing puck drop from 4 to 5:40 p.m.
