The No. 4-ranked Ohio State men’s hockey team closes the first half of its season with a home-and-home series against in-state rival Miami this week. The teams will meet at 7:05 p.m. Friday in Value City Arena in Columbus and at 7:05 p.m. Saturday at Steve Cady Arena in Oxford. If you can't make it out to the arena, links to audio, video and live stats for both games are available on the Buckeye Hockey Gameday page:

As fall quarter finals week comes to a close, Senior Danny Dries is back with another blog:

What’s new Buckeye Nation!? Or as Brandon Martell would say, Maljadeed Buckeye Nation? This weekend we play the Miami RedHawks in our last series before winter break, so be sure to make it out to The Schott for our Friday game!

With the holiday season fast approaching a lot of talk around the locker room has been about what guys are hoping Santa brings them this year. I’ve been taking notes of what’s on whose list and feel like I need to share some of my favorites with you guys!

Alex Lippincott - Lippy’s really hoping to find a new apartment lease under the tree in the coming weeks. He made a very questionable decision to live with Chris “The Colonel” Crane in a three-person apartment this year. But what he wasn’t counting on was The Colonel having his girlfriend move in with him and turning it into a cramped four-person apartment!
Chris Crane - The Colonel is really hoping for some extra closet space this holiday season!
Nick Oddo - Now that he has accepted the fact that he looks like Mr. Potato Head he really needs a Toy Story DVD!
Paul Kirtland - Just really hoping he finds a pair of stilts this holiday season.
Ryan Dzingel - Ryan is hoping for some backstage passes to meet his idol, Justin Bieber!
Matt Johnson - Johny Bananas, as we like to call him, is hoping to get out of the friend zone with a girl just once at OSU!
Coach Exter - Really wishing for Ohio State to relocate to Cape Cod, where his wardrobe will fit in just great! (I hope I’m in the lineup this weekend)
Danny Dries - Hoping Chris Crane doesn’t give me the silent treatment again like he did after my last blog! Hopefully I’m on Santa’s nice list!



Thanks for reading guys and I’ll be back after the weekend with another blog!

Go Bucks!
