Preparation
Gearing up

At 10 a.m. the whole crew filed into the Xcel Center to set up the equipment for the live stream. Cameras and the Tricaster, which is
Setting up the Tricaster.
what the device used to publish the stream to the internet is called, need to be set up, tested and then run back to the Coliseum so all the fans can see the exclusive content that we are providing.

By 1:30 it was ready to go. Everyone was happy with the lighting and the shots, so we abandoned our little studio in what would normally be the visitor’s locker room on game night, and hit the Eagle Street Grille for  a hearty lunch.

By now it was about 3 p.m. and fans starting to roam the streets right around the Xcel Center. A bunch of us hit the gift shop, which is called the Hockey Lodge. They had some great souvenir items, and we all came away with something. It was quite an impressive shop, with a very wide slection of Minnesota Wild items.

A quick run back to the hotel to get ready for showtime, and now the blood was really pumping though our veins. You could start to feel in the air that an exciting night was about to unfold.
Printed on our reciepts at the Eagle Street Grille.

*Note: You could tell it was going to be a good night for the Winnipeg Jets. There were fans everywhere wearing jerseys, shirts and hats. All night long you could hear them cheering Go, Jets Go!

Now it’s the countdown to No. 5…it feels like time is moving so slow….
