Due to a conflict with a Minnesota Wild telecast, Saturday’s Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoff game between Minnesota and St. Cloud State will air live on Fox Sports North’s alternate channel, FSN Plus.
The channel will be available on all major cable outlets across Minnesota. It will also be available to DishNetwork and DirecTV subscribers. Both the Gophers and Wild games begin at 7 p.m. The Wild game at Dallas will air on the regular FSN channel. The Gopher game will also air tape-delayed on the regular FSN channel following the Wild game on Saturday night.
Friday's Gopher game will air live on the regular FSN channel at 7 p.m. If this weekend’s playoff series needs a third game on Sunday, it will be joined in progress following the Wild telecast on the regular FSN channel. The Wild plays at St. Louis at 5 p.m., while Sunday’s “if necessary” game between the Gophers and St. Cloud State starts at 7 p.m.
