    Yes, as witnessed by the NBCSN game highlights above & the Wisconsin State Journal article content re. artificial crowd noise posted further up. Take your pick.

    The first weekend of the 2020-21 NCAA Div. I men's hockey season is finally in the proverbial books. Four of five scheduled games were completed: B1G kickoff, Wisconsin @ Notre Dame for two games; an Arizona State @ Michigan non-conference pair; and a non-conference D-III vs. D-I match-up, Adrian College @ Bowling Green State. The Long Island University @ Army game scheduled for Saturday was postponed for COVID precautions.

    A qualified success for getting the top-tier U.S. college hockey season underway. :crossfing

    A little late, but ... Plow through all the COVID-related talk in the top portion of this USCHO.com article, and you'll get to some informative 2020-21 Pre-Season Big Ten Men's Team Capsules.

    USCHO.com: Atlantic Hockey 2020-21 Preview

    Ed. Note: I sure wish the USCHO.com editors would institute a sidebar policy for all writers to separate their miles of "Remember last spring when we were all excited about hockey?" content from the actual topic of their articles. I spent so much time scrolling down to these season previews, I forgot what I had opened the page for in the first place. :dunno:

    Tough two weekends for my hometown Lindenwood University Lady Lions in Pennsylvania. Four straight losses to start their abbreviated 2020-21 season, outscored 15-3 by Penn State & Robert Morris with shutouts to begin & end their road trip. The looks on the faces of their coaching staff tells the tale best, but at least they're playing hockey again ...

    One hopeful sign: It looks like RMU allowed a few fans in the stands. I'm hoping that will be the case back here at home next weekend & beyond. :crossfing

    A Sunday morning snapshot of men's D1 hockey active conferences so far ...
    • Atlantic Hockey: Robert Morris has a head start on the rest of the conference, largely due to several game postponements for the rest of the pack. RMU leads the standing with a 3-1 conference record (5-2 overall). Independent guest team Long Island U are on a pause until at least next weekend's pair @ RIT, after splitting a season-opening pair vs. Holy Cross before Thanksgiving.
    • Big Ten: Minnesota leads the standings with a 6-0-0-0-0 conference record, with Wisconsin sitting at 5-3-0-0-1. The Gophers have the best defensive stats so far among the B1G teams, including a 15/15 penalty kill record. Michigan leads in scoring stats, including the top power play. Guest independent Arizona State is 3-4-1 so far, having upset Wisconsin with a sweep in Madison in late November then splitting a pair @ Notre Dame this past week.
    • Hockey East: Only BC & Providence have played conference games so far, with the Eagles sweeping the Friars in a home-and-home series this weekend by a 12-0 composite score. UConn, UMass and Merrimack have seen some non-conference play. ETA: Merrimack is hosting UMass on Sunday afternoon for their initial HEA games of the season.
    • NCHC: The Great Pod Hockey Experiment continues, with daily action in Omaha since the first puck dropped on December 1. Minnesota-Duluth & St. Cloud are tied at 6 points, with UNO & NoDak gaining 5 points. Colorado College begins their Pod Play on December 8th, facing Western Michigan.
    • ECAC: Only Colgate & Clarkson have begun 2020-21 play, with just 4 teams scheduled to compete this season. The Raiders are 2-1 in ECAC play, 4-1-1 overall. The Golden Knights are 1-2 in conference play (go figger), with an overall season record of 1-2-1.
    • WCHA: Just non-conference play so far, with Alaska & Ferris State & Northern Michigan still idle. Alaska-Anchorage is an opt-out, accelerating their program's demise by a season.

    And equal time for the women’s side ...
    • CHA: Conference play for 2020-21 started on the Thanksgiving weekend, with Syracuse hosting the resurrected RIT team. The Orange beat the Tigers in the opening game, but Game #2 was postponed due to “COVID protocols” for the RIT ladies. At this early point in their shortened season, the Pennsylvania teams are leading the pack with Penn State at the top of the conference standings at 3-0-1 followed by Robert Morris at 2-0.
    • ECAC: With the Ivy League winter sports programs skipping the 2020-21 season along with RPI & Union, there are only four ECAC women’s teams playing: Clarkson, Colgate, Quinnipiac & St. Lawrence (the latter delaying their start until after Christmas). Clarkson & Colgate have gone head-to-head four times in the only ECAC women’s action so far, with the Raiders going 2-1-1.
    • Hockey East: Women’s conference play began on November 20th, but 3 of the 10 teams still await conference match-ups (Merrimack, Northeastern & Vermont). The HEA women’s composite schedule & game results don’t sync up with their standings page content, so I’m not quite sure what’s what with their season so far. But the Providence Lady Friars games have been on the CBS College Sports Live free stream the last couple of weekends, so those are signs of life & hockey. :hockey:
    • WCHA: Women’s conference play began the weekend before Thanksgiving, with Minnesota State hosting MN-Duluth for a pair & Minnesota hosting OH State for two games. The Bemidji State @ St. Cloud State opening weekend double header was postponed due to several positive COVID test results for the Huskies’ program. A half-dozen more postponements dot the current WCHA women’s schedule. Meanwhile in the conference standings, the Duluth Bulldogs lead with a 4-2-0-0-0 record, followed by the Golden Gophers at 3-1-0-0-0. The Lady Bulldogs have 6 of the top 10 goal scorers, with 8 of the top 10 point-getters early in the season. The team’s conference dominance is spread across several statistical categories.
