ST. CLOUD — Husky hockey fans are just a day away from the big game and one group is now Pittsburgh bound to see it in person.

A charter bus left St. Cloud late Wednesday afternoon, carrying a full load of fans to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport where they’ll hop abroad a flight heading to the Frozen Four.

The group was scheduled to leave tomorrow, until Minnesota weather prevented that from happening.

Long-time season ticket holder Mike Niavetz says he’s excited for the game, but more excited for the program.

Keith Laudenbach is also making the trip to the Steel City to see the team make their first tournament appearance in school history. He says the Husky are getting hot at the right time.

There was nothing but smiles on the faces of those just beginning a hockey-filled weekend.

For some fans, this is not their first Frozen Four trip.

Niavetz took in some games when the tournament was held in St. Paul in 2011. He says he could tell this was a special team since the first pucked dropped this season.

Hockey isn’t the only sport happening this weekend. Laudenbach says he plans to see some baseball and enjoy his weekend away.

Both men see this trip as a positive for the school, no matter the outcome.

Fans will have to patiently wait just a little while longer to see their Huskies take on number one seeded Quinnipiac. The official puck drops at 7 p.m. Thursday night. You can hear the game live on AM 1390 The Fan.
