Cold Winds; High Spirits

Connecticut fans shattered The American Hockey League’s attendance record The Connecticut Whale sold some 28,500 tickets for the “Whale Bowl”  at Rentschler Field in East Hartford.  The game was the main event of a series of youth, academic and collegiate hockey games played on the outdoor ice.
