Live from RiverCentre
We're live and ready to go at RiverCentre in downtown St. Paul, Minn., for the 2011 Lester Patrick Award dinner. There will be media availability with the honorees in a few minutes before a cocktail reception and the ceremony, which gets rolling at 8 p.m. local time.

Haven't been to Xcel Energy Center before, but it looks splendid from the outside. It is next door to RiverCentre, and this whole complex overlooks the Mississippi River. The view from what has been designated the media room alone is very nice. Given the time of year, the leaves are a million different colors and walking along the river made for a nice little afternoon in the Twin Cities.
