I'll be watching (Fox Sports Detroit and replayed on Big Ten Network at 9PM)... :)


"For the third time in as many seasons, the Michigan hockey team is headed outdoors for a game. Two years ago, the Wolverines lost a game to Wisconsin by a score of 3-2 at Camp Randall Stadium. Last season, Michigan defeated Michigan State 5-0 in The Big Chill at the Big House with more than 100,000 people in attendance. On Sunday evening, Michigan will do battle with the rival Ohio State Buckeyes in the Frozen Diamond Faceoff at Progressive Field, the home of the Cleveland Indians.

While the Frozen Diamond Faceoff doesn't have nearly the same amount of excitement that surrounded the game at Michigan Stadium or even Camp Randall Stadium, for that matter, it's always fun for the players and fans when hockey is taken outdoors. Considering how often outdoors games are played, it isn't quite the spectacle anymore to see an ice rink in a baseball stadium, but Progressive Field should provide a memorable setting for Sunday's clash between Michigan and Ohio State."
