Friday, November 7, Broadcaster Profile- Mike Logan, Providence Friars I am very excited to begin the task of profiling the radio voices of Hockey East with this post, and the first gentleman we will meet will be Mike Logan, the longtime radio voice of the Providence Friars. He has a long history of play by play work in college athletics.
The East Regional, after all, was in Providence.
Ultimately, the Friars did come through. Was it because they played in Rhode Island, though? This regional did great attendance-wise, but at the end of the day you got to go out and win the game. You can make all the fuss about all the fluff on the outside, but the game is played on the ice.
I give the guys a lot of credit. They had to go out and win a game and they did it twice.
There will be more distractions, but I like how the guys handled it this weekend. The Friars will play Minnesota-Duluth in the opening game of the Frozen Four semifinals on Thursday, April 11, and the focus had already shifted towards looking ahead instead of celebrating a well-deserved regional title.
Just ask Northern Michigan: 18 WCHA wins last year, 21 overall, yet a dismal non-conference record cost them their tourney bid. This season, the Robert Morris Colonials have found a great one.
Keep following the WCHA action as in-conference play begins in earnest with several key matchups on the slate. The upcoming week brings a huge slate of games as in-conference competition begins in earnest.
Half a decade of futility. As always, be sure to check out our full event schedule to see the other college puck we've got with the WCHA and Big Ten.
