It Just Doesn't Get Old
The CIAC State Hockey Tournament comes to the Ingalls Rink at Yale once again, and for my mind, it just doesn't get old. The High School Hockey world will descend on Ingalls Rink for some great hockey games, Many times the Semifinals are even better than the Championship Games. Teams leaving it all on the ice trying to get to the Big Dance. The atmosphere is electric, the play on the ice intense and it shouldn't be any other way. Just to get to the Ingalls is quite an accomplishment for these teams. I applaud them all. If you get a chance, check out the Whale in New Haven, where High School Hockey will be alive and well as 3 Hockey Champions will be crowned.
