It’s an exciting time in the Northland for many families, the Minnesota State Boys Hockey Tournament begins this week.  Our media partners, WDIO/WIRT will be airing the hockey action, but for those that are still interested in their favorite TV show, when you can you catch that?  No worries, we’ve got the playoff brackets and the programming schedule just for you.

Wrenshall didn’t have a hockey team when I was in school, but our clasesspretty much  stopped down to watch the schools that did and had made it to the playoffs.  Some schools we had never even heard of before!  WDIO/WIRT has been diligent in bringing us all the hockey action every year.  For some, that means their favorite shows have been moved to air the hockey games, when can you view them?

Congrats to the Hermantown Hawks on making their 8th trip to State and on another fantastic season, especially to the 10 departing seniors.  There are only two Northland teams that will be traveling to the Twin Cities in hopes to outplay their opponents.  The other team is no stranger to the playoffs, they’ve been there before too, Grand Rapids.

All the action will starts on Wednesday, March 8 at 11am.  Games will continue into the weekend.  According to WDIO.com, ABC programming will change while the State Tournament is in play.  Start times for games vary due to how the games prior have been played.  Therefore, the following is a schedule of tentative start times for your favorite programs according to WDIO.com.
