MINNEAPOLIS - The St. Cloud State women's hockey team is stranded in Rhode Island, thanks to superstorm Sandy.
The Huskies were supposed to catch a flight out of Boston on Monday after playing a weekend series against Providence College.
But coach Jeff Giesen tells KARE-TV (http://kare11.tv/TqxDIC) the airport was closed in Boston and roads are closed. So the 22 players and five staff members are stuck in their hotel rooms in Providence, R.I. They might not be able to catch a flight out of Boston until Thursday.
Giesen says the team is going to try to get some practice time at Providence and see if the college can help them do some laundry.
St. Cloud State's home opener is scheduled for Friday night.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
