Hello State of Hockey. The Lighthouse is coming at you today from the beautiful Xcel Energy Center and the inaugural Big Ten Hockey Tournament.

Ilya Bryzgalov will start in net for the Wild tonight.
The netminder was acquired Tuesday, in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick, to add some needed depth between the pipes as goaltender Niklas Backstrom has been shut down for the foreseeable future.
Fans making their way to the Wild game tonight against the Blues, be advised: 35E between 94 and Hwy 36 is closed for construction. It may be a slight hassle, but please look ahead for another way into Saint Paul.
