This is your friendly reminder that “Onward to Victory: Notre Dame Hockey” will air tonight at 9:30pm EST on Versus (soon to be the NBC Sports Network). And after the horrid excuse for a football game that was the Champs Sports Bowl, any escape from thinking about ND football is definitely welcome at this point.
As discussed in this week’s Pre-Snap Read, the show will cover the roots of the Irish hockey program, the emergence of the program as a national power, the building of the Compton Family Ice Arena, and the opening game in said arena, an OT thriller against the Boston College Eagles.
I can’t stress enough how great this program is. I’ve been fortunate to get an advance screening of the program and it is simply fantastic. This is a much watch for anyone that truly bleeds blue and gold.
If you want a hockey double-dose, be sure to watch Notre Dame take on Boston University beforehand at 7pm EST on Versus. Seriously, a nationally televised regular season college hockey game, that just doesn’t happen everyday.
Be sure to check out the preview on Youtube to see the greatness that you are in store for tonight. Have a happy and safe New Year!

Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
