November 17, 2011 - United States Hockey League (USHL) - Sioux City Musketeers
After playing four games in six nights last week, the Musketeers schedule eases a bit as the team will have only one game this weekend.
Sioux City will make the short drive down I-29 for a rematch with the Omaha Lancers at 7:05 PM at the Omaha Civic Auditorium.
The Lancers dealt the hometown Musketeers a tough 6-4 loss on Sunday at Tyson Events Center and Sioux City will be looking for payback.
The Musketeers picked up four points during the team's four game homestand and are playing their best hockey of the season in time for a six game road trip that starts Saturday.
If you can't make the short drive to support the guys on the road, then be sure to watch and/or listen to Curtis Anderson and Jordan Berger as they'll have the call from the Civic Auditorium on Fox Sports Radio 620 KMNS, as well as on the USHL's new online broadcast partner Fast Hockey. Coverage starts at 6:45 PM.
TEDDY BEAR TOSS GAME SET FOR SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10th
The Musketeers will be having their annual Teddy Bear Toss "Toys for Tots" game on Saturday, December 10th when Sioux City hosts the Fargo Force at Tyson Events Center at 7:00 PM.
Much like the 'Sock it to Me' night, fans are encouraged to bring a Teddy Bear that will be tossed on to the ice after the Musketeers score their first goal.
The Siouxland Detachment of the Marine Corp Leagues will collect the bears and distribute them to the less fortunate children throughout the Siouxland area for Christmas.
