North Dakota fans have the reputation of being the best fans in college hockey which means green and white fans will be flocking to Grand Rapids, Michigan for tomorrows regional game with Niagara.

Local sports bars and drinking establishments around Van Angel Arena are looking to play host for the tournament crowd. One hangout, the Grand Woods Lounge, has North Dakota as its "host school." The Lounge is about two blocks southwest of the arena on the corner of Oakes Street and Grandville Avenue and is getting ready for the loyal UND fans to arrive.

Dax Hylarides, General Manager, Grand Woods Lounge: "We're offering specials to the North Dakota fans. Anybody that has a ticket or maybe even an id or wearing the school colors will be 20% off just as a thank you to the North Dakota fans."
