The Sully

Sullivan Arena
Sullivan Arena – Anchorage, AK

There were two games on Friday at the Sully, which just received a much needed renovation. They finally replaced the glass, which was a decade overdue. Last year I thought it was the worst I have ever seen at a rink. It was like looking through a glass jar filled with skim milk. They are crystal clear now, however.

Alaska Nanooks
The University of Alaska Nanooks warming up.

In the afternoon game, the Alaska Nanooks hosted the St Cloud State Huskies. Some sloppy play from both teams, and a lot of time in the penalty box for Alaska. SCSU cruised to a 3-0 win.

ASU Sun Devils
The ASU Sun Devils warm up before their first D-1 game.

The UAA Seawolves hosted the Arizona State Sun Devils in the nightcap. It was a great game, with ASU playing a very physical, tenacious game. It was the first Division 1 game for the Sun Devils after moving up to the D-1 ranks this season. I was impressed with their play, and have to admit I was really pulling for them against Anchorage. ASU finally took the lead 2-1 in the third period, but UAA tied it up late in the period. The Seawolves’ Brad Duwe scored the game winner in OT for Anchorage.

The Nanooks will have to step up their game from Friday if they want to at least split this weekend. ASU came up to Alaska to play.
