Hockey City Classic pucks get Michigan's name wrong

Saturday February 7th, 2015

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.
