The Don Lucia Radio Show returns to the airwaves of 1500 ESPN for the 2013-14 season, airing live on Mondays during the year from the Beacon Public House inside the Commons Hotel on campus.
Join Coach Lucia and co-hosts Wally Shaver and Jeff Dubay on Mondays throughout the season with each show airing live on 1500 ESPN from 6-6:30 p.m. CT.
This week, the Don Lucia Radio Show looks ahead to Minnesota's series against Minnesota State this weekend at Mariucci Arena. The Gophers are 33-10-6 all-time against the Mavericks, who are coached by former Gophers assistant coach Mike Hastings. While the teams have met 49 times since 1998, this weekend's series marks their first meeting as nonconference opponents. The Gophers are 16-4-6 all-time against Minnesota State at home with this weekend's series kicking off a six-game, three-week home stand for Minnesota.
Tonight's show will also look back on last weekend's split at Notre Dame. Lucia, a 1981 graduate of Notre Dame, saw his squad fall 4-1 to his alma mater on Friday before rallying for a 5-4 win over the Irish in Saturday's series finale. Saturday's win marked Lucia's 350th win as head coach of the Gophers.
For the second-season in a row, Beacon Public House will host a live viewing of the Don Lucia Radio Show with food and drink specials every Monday night for Gopher Hockey fans. Learn more about Beacon Public House here.
