Minnesota Swarm to Air on Local TV on Saturday

Always wanted to check out a Swarm game, but don't want to commit to the point of buying a ticket without seeing the product? You're in luck. This Saturday, April 2nd, the Swarm vs Calgary Roughnecks game will be broadcast locally on KSTC, Channel 45 at 6PM.

The game is part of "Hockey Night at the Hive," due to the game immediately following a Minnesota Wild game at the X at 1PM. The Swarm, unlike the Wild, are set to clinch a playoff spot on Saturday, and the game should be a good one. According to the press release, the Swarm are also sponsoring a pub crawl between the Wild and Swarm games in the local establishments near the X.

Make the jump for the full press release, plus a link to a re-make of the song Blue & Yellow by Wiz Khalifa that has a new found Swarm theme. It's entertaining, and you should check it out.
