St. Cloud State women's hockey team waiting out superstorm Sandy in RI

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.

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
