WILL TUCKER POOLMAN PLAY? “Hopefully Tucker will be able to play this weekend and we’ll see if he can. We played a big chunk of the game without him and we can still play and win.” Asked if Poolman would be a “game time” decision, Jackson responded “we’re going to see how he’s coming along throughout the week and go from there.”
THE ATMOSPHERE AT SHEELS ARENA IN FARGO IS GOING TO BE EXCITING, MUCH LIKE THE “OLD” RALPH: “It gives our guys an extra boost. It’s gonna be an just awesome environment. Our fans are so vocal and so supportive, it’s like a big home game for us” Jackson said “our guys are really excited about getting back to that atmosphere.” The impact of that environment on the game? “I thought it was a huge advantage for us when we advanced and beat Quinnipiac and St. Cloud two years ago.” Needless to say, this group is looking forward to Friday’s game and the electric environment that will certainly be resident in Fargo.
