NEW YORK—A tour guide at NBC Studios asked his group of 12 where they were from. "Georgia," the first one said. "Massachusetts." "North Dakota." The whole group turned around. "There are people from North Dakota everywhere!" one tourist said. "Hockey, right?" Right. An estimated 8,000 UND fans descended on Manhattan last weekend, enjoying a vacation planned around UND's showdown against Boston College in Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK—It's not easy to pull off a neutral site game. Logistics are difficult. Finances can be tricky. But Josh Fenton and the National Collegiate Hockey Conference pulled off their No. 1 goal in putting together the College Hockey Showdown at Madison Square Garden: giving players and fans an unforgettable experience. Moments after UND beat Boston College 4-3 in the venue nicknamed The World's Most Famous Arena, players and coaches on both sides spoke glowingly of the experience in Manhattan this week.
NEW YORK—The UND men's hockey team has never been one for sightseeing. It has constantly repeated the mantra that its road trips are "business trips." UND was the only team that skipped a free tour of Lambeau Field at the 2011 NCAA regionals in Green Bay, Wis. UND has never hit tourist sites as a team in Boston, Anchorage, Tampa, Denver or any other places it has visited in the last decade. But UND coach Brad Berry made a rare exception on Friday.
UND made sure all of the glitz and glamour of its trip to Manhattan would be memorable by toppling longtime nemesis Boston College 4-3 in the inaugural College Hockey Showdown in Madison Square Garden.
NEW YORK—For the second time in three days, the Minnesota Timberwolves put together a big second-half comeback against the New York Knicks. For the second time in three days, it wasn't enough. Despite rallying from down 14 in the second half, the Timberwolves once again found a way to lose—this time a 118-114 decision to the Knicks on Friday night in Madison Square Garden. Minnesota has lost four in a row and seven of the past eight as they have stumbled to the second-worst record in the Western Conference and the third-worst in all of the NBA.
NEW YORK—They've been at Today Show and the Tonight Show. They've been at the top of Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building and One World Trade Center. They've flooded Times Square, Wall Street and Central Park. They've dined at 99 Cent Fresh Pizza and Le Bernardin. Now, it's finally time for the main show that brought an estimated thousands of UND hockey fans to Manhattan this week. UND will take on Boston College at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Madison Square Garden in an event dubbed the College Hockey Showdown.
Editors note: Kevin Maxwell may be UND's strongest connection to Madison Square Garden. Maxwell, one of three UND players to earn All-American honors as a freshman (Ed Belfour and Brock...
NEW YORK—Tyson Jost was asked what he knows about the history of North Dakota and Boston College. The UND freshman paused. He thought for a second. "Honestly, not too much," he said. "I definitely know that there's a rivalry there." Read between the lines. The names Krys Kolanos, Chris Collins and Nathan Gerbe are not curse words to him. Their performances in the 2001, 2006, 2007 and 2008 NCAA Frozen Fours do not ring a bell to him.
