Tonight marks the first game of Penn State's new D1 Mens hockey team (well, first D1 varsity game since the 1940s). Appears broadcasting on the Penn State Sports Network and gopsusports.com (I assume as subscription required? Guess we'll find out tonight). BTN to televise two games later in the season.
